Time is running out for Richmondshire residents to get their names on the new register of electors.

The district council has put out a final call to householders still needing to complete the paperwork which will make sure their names are on the register when it is published on December 1.

Without this listing residents will not be able to vote when elections take place.

Richmondshire’s 24,000 homes have all received a form containing the information on the current electoral register – they are being asked to make sure it is correct and identify any residents not registered so that they can be included.

Reminders have been sent to non-responding households and a door-to-door canvass across the district been completed.

Non-responding households will now be sent a final reminder.

People who have registered in previous years but fail to respond this year run the risk of having their names deleted from the register.
