Chesterfield residents reminded to check they are registered to vote

Chesterfield Borough Council is reminding residents to make sure they are registered to vote in any elections which may take place in the coming year.

Each household in Chesterfield should have received a form as part of the annual canvass to check whether the information that appears on the electoral register for those living at their address is correct.

People should check that all of the information contained in the form is correct and confirm their details by visiting

They will need to enter the security codes printed on the form they have received through the post.

Huw Bowen, Chesterfield Borough Council’s chief executive and electoral registration officer, said: “Anyone that wants to vote at future elections must be registered, simply check the form when it arrives and respond as quickly as possible.

“The easiest way is to do this online or using the freephone number, alternatively, you can return the form by post.

“If you’re not currently registered, we’ll send you information explaining how to do this or you can also apply online.”

Residents who are not currently registered to vote can register

It is particularly important that anyone who has moved address recently looks out for the form and checks whether they are registered.

Any residents who have any questions can contact the elections team at Chesterfield Borough Council, email or call 01246 345402.
