On Thursday 3 May, residents in Coventry will have their chance to go to the polls to vote on who represents them at a local level.
Local government elections take place for the election of councillors, who are responsible for decisions on running services within Coventry. This includes housing, education, transport, planning, parks, leisure, fire and public safety, social care and waste management.
In order to vote in this important election, residents must be on the electoral register. The deadline for registering to vote is fast approaching, and Coventry City Council is urging residents who have not yet registered to vote to make sure they’ve registered in time.
Liz Read, Electoral Services Manager, said: “Time is running out to make sure you can take part in these local elections. These elections are an opportunity to make your voice heard and to have your say on who represents you on issues that directly affect your day-to-day life, but if you’re not registered at your current address by 17 April, you won’t be able to vote.”
