Reminder for MEP voting registration

RESIDENTS in Arun are being encouraged to check they are registered to vote for the forthcoming European Parliamentary Election.

UK polling stations will open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday, May 22, across Arun, where electors can vote for the Members of the European Parliament who they would like to represent the south east region.

There are 10 seats in total, which will be awarded through a system of proportional representation.

Electors who have already registered to vote will receive a poll card confirming their voting arrangements.

But there is still time for anyone not yet registered to make an application, as the last day of registration is Tuesday, 6 May 2014, or to apply for a postal vote.
