Residents need to register to vote in May elections

Have your say

PORTSMOUTH residents are being reminded they need to register to vote in this year’s general and local elections on May 7.

The call to register by Portsmouth City Council coincides with National Voter Registration Day today, organised by non-party campaign group Bite the Ballot.

The council is urging three main groups of people to make sure they are registered: students, people new to the city and residents who have changed address.
