Voters in Brighton and Hove have less than a fortnight to ensure that they will be able to have their say at the general election on Thursday 6 May.
Brighton and Hove City Council said that voters must register by Tuesday 20 April to qualify for the electoral roll.
Council chief executive and acting returning officer John Barradell said: “All eligible voters in Brighton and Hove should ensure they are on the electoral register as the countdown to the general election is now on.
“If you’re not on the register, you can’t vote.”
There are three constituencies in Brighton and Hove. They are Brighton Kemptown, Brighton Pavilion and Hove. The Kemptown constituency also takes in parts of the Lewes district – East Saltdean, Telscombe and Peacehaven.
Residents can check whether they’re registered by phoning the Electoral Services Office at Brighton Town Hall on 01273 291999.
Residents can also appoint someone else to vote on their behalf – called proxy voting – if there is a particular reason why they cannot vote in person. The deadline to apply for a proxy vote is 27 April.
Candidates can collect nomination packs from Brighton Town Hall.
Nomination papers should be returned to the Electoral Services Office at Brighton Town Hall between 10am and 4pm between Wednesday 14 April and Tuesday 20 April.
