Voter registration forms have been dropping through letterboxes across the Lewes District and you are being urged to return yours as soon as possible to make your voice heard in the Police and Crime Commissioners Election on 15 November 2012.

Your local Electoral Services Office will be sending reminder forms to households in the Lewes District over the coming months to compile the electoral register. If you haven't received your form you can contact your Electoral Registration Officer on (01273) 484116 or 484117.

Registering to vote is very simple. All you have to do is update the annual canvass form with the details of everyone in your household who is eligible to vote and return it to us as soon as possible. If your details haven't changed you can also reply by text, free phone or internet.

Lewes District's Electoral Registration Officer says: "There was a lot of interest in last year's referendum on the UK voting system and we were pleased with the increase in registration shortly before polling day. However, some people may not realise that they have to register every year. It is important that you complete and return the registration form so you're able to take part in the upcoming election."

On your electoral registration form you can opt to have your details excluded from the edited register. This will mean your details cannot be bought by individuals and commercial organisations.
