2012 elections – timetable

By on 27/03/2012 in Elections, News

With local elections and the referendum on the voting system looming on 3rd May, potential voters who have moved or turned 18 during the last six months are being urged to ensure they protect their right to vote by checking they are on the electoral register.

In order to be eligible to take part in the polls, all citizens must be registered under their current address on the city's electoral roll before it closes - on 18th April.

Birmingham City Council is urging local people to act now to protect their democratic right to vote, as they may run out of time otherwise.

Polling for both votes will take place on Thursday 3rd May 7am-10pm, with voters being urged to stagger their visits throughout the day and avoid a last minute rush.

To inform the council of a change to your details on the electoral register go to http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/election or call the elections office on 303 2731 before 18th April.
