Fenland District Council is running four sessions next week to help people register to vote in the May 7 General Election.

Two take place next Thursday (February 5) – one at the Rosmini Centre in Wisbech (10am-noon), the other at March Library (2-4pm).

Two more will be held on Friday (February 6) at the Chatteris Community Hub (10am-noon) and the Whittlesey Community Hub (2-4pm).

A member of the council’s electoral services team will be available at each one to help people with registering.

The sessions are in support of National Voter Registration Day, an event initiated by the organisation Bite the Ballot. The deadline to register to vote in all the polls is April 20 but the council is advising anyone who has not already registered to do so as soon as possible.
