Poll cards go out ahead of Sussex PCC election

PR2035/TS/MF - 31/03/2016


Mid Sussex District Council has posted out Poll Cards to every registered elector in Mid Sussex ahead of the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner election on Thursday 5 May.

Anyone who has not received their Poll Card by Tuesday 5 April 2016 should contact Mid Sussex District Council immediately because it could mean they are not registered and are therefore not eligible to vote. Paying Council Tax or logging details with another Council department does not automatically entitle people to vote. Voter details must be entered onto the Electoral Register separately.

“The deadline to apply to be included on the Electoral Register for the Police and Crime Commissioner election is Monday 18 April 2016, so there is still time to sign up,” said Tom Clark, Returning Officer for Mid Sussex District Council. “Registering to vote only takes a few minutes so don’t miss out on the chance to make your voice heard.”

The quickest and most convenient way to register is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

If you have any questions regarding registration or the electoral process then please contact the Mid Sussex District Council Electoral Services team on 01444 477003 or email elections@midsussex.gov.uk.
