People living in Daventry District have until Tuesday, 7 May to register to vote in the European Parliamentary election scheduled to take place next month.
Daventry District Council is making preparations for the polling day on Thursday, 23 May following the latest agreement by the European Union and UK to extend the Brexit deadline to the end of October.
Residents are reminded that there are no local council elections in Daventry District on 2 May after they were postponed by the Government for a year in the light of proposals to restructure councils in Northamptonshire. Any polling cards they receive in the coming weeks will be for the European election only.
The deadline for registering to vote in time for the European parliamentary election is midnight on Tuesday, 7 May. Those registering to vote for the first time can do so online at www.gov.uk/registertovote
