People in Cheshire West and Chester are being urged to act now to ensure they have a voice in the upcoming elections and referendums.
On May 5 voters in the borough will go to the polls to elect a Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for the Cheshire Police area.

On the same day there will also be a by-election in the Winsford Town Council Over Ward and neighbourhood plan referendums in Hartford, Helsby, Neston and Tarporley.

And on June 23 there will be a national referendum on whether or not the United Kingdom should remain in the European Union.

People have until April 18 to register to vote in the May 5 elections and referendums. All residents who are registered should already have received polling cards.

"The message is simple: you can't vote if you are not registered. It's easy to do and only takes a few minutes."

The process to register to vote changed in June 2014. The responsibility is now with the individual for registering. Under the old system one person in a household could register everyone who lived at their address.

Residents can register online at The website also has instructions about how to register by post.
