Don't lose your chance to vote - register now!

Craven residents are being reminded to register to vote as the deadline for May's district and parish elections approaches.

Residents must register by April 18 in order to vote in the elections on May 5, and by June 7 to vote in the EU referendum on June 23.

Around 3,000 reminders have gone out to homes in the district where nobody is registered to vote and as a direct result another 60 people have signed up in the last few days.

Paul Shevlin, chief executive at Craven District Council, said: "We want everyone in the district to have the chance to use their vote.

"I would urge anyone who has not done so already, to register now so they can exercise their democratic right and have a say in the running of our district."
