Make sure you have your say - register to vote

PR2096/TS/JB - 27/03/2017

With local elections taking place in just a few weeks, voters in Mid Sussex are being urged to make sure they are registered to vote and are able to take part on polling day.

On Thursday 4 May 2017 voters in Mid Sussex will go to the polls to elect representatives for West Sussex County Council. The Mid Sussex electoral area of the County Council is made up of 12 divisions, each of which is represented by a single elected Councillor.

The deadline to register to vote in these elections is Thursday 13 April 2017. Whilst there is still time, it’s running out quickly. Anyone who isn’t registered to vote won’t be able to take part. The good news is that it only takes a few minutes to register online at

Tom Clark, Returning Officer for Mid Sussex District Council said:

“Anyone not yet registered to vote should do so as soon as possible so they can have their say on issues that affect their day-to-day lives in West Sussex area. It’s quick and easy to register, but after the deadline of 13 April, it will be too late.”
