Don't lose your right to vote

Council electorial registration officer Glen Chipp said: “It’s important that residents look out for messages from the council, so we can make sure we have the right details on the electoral register for every address in the Horsham district.

“If you’re not currently registered, your name will not appear in the messages we send. If you want to register, the easiest way is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote , or we’ll send you information explaining how to do this in the post.”

People who have moved recently are particularly encouraged to look out for the voter registration messages and check the details.
