Register your vote in Amber Valley

Amber Valley residents are being urged not to delay in registering their vote - so the electoral register is as up-to-date as possible before the first election of a Police and Crime Commissioner for Derbyshire, is held on Thursday, November 15.

Each year, the Council sends out nearly 55,000 voter registration forms, and this year it is asking more people to use the online system if there are no changes to their details.

Where there are changes to registration details, residents will need to return their form by post, to Main Reception at Ripley Town Hall or to one of the Town Centre Offices.

Peter Carney, electoral registration officer for Amber Valley said: “Registering to vote is quick and simple. All you have to do is use the electronic system to confirm that no details have changed or update the voter registration form with details of everyone who lives in the household and is eligible to vote.

“Either way, we want to encourage people to respond as quickly as possible. These are new elections. If you want to have your say, you must ensure you are registered to vote.”
