Register to vote in local elections

Have your say

Havant borough residents are being encouraged to register to vote in time for the deadline.

Elections of local councillors and the Police Crime Commission take place on Thursday, May 5.

Nick Leach, returning officer for the election, said: ‘The deadline to register is Monday, April 18, only eight working days away, so if you’re not already registered, please don’t delay.’

Residents can register to vote quickly and easily online at or obtain a registration form by calling (023) 9244 6225/6.

Voters can also have their say using postal votes, which means not having to visit the ballot box on May 5.
