Burnley and Pendle Citizen: Pendle Council urge residents to ‘register your vote’ Pendle Council urge residents to ‘register your vote’

PENDLE Council is reminding residents to check they are on the electoral register ahead of the elections in May.

On Thursday, May 22, there will be elections to Pendle Borough Council and the European Parliament.

Councillors in 16 of Pendle’s 20 wards are up for re-election this year. There are no borough elections in Blacko and Higherford, Foulridge, Higham and Pendleside, and Old Laund Booth wards.

Pendle residents have until next Tuesday to get on the Register of Electors to be eligible to vote in these elections. To check if you are on the roll call 01282 661662. Gillian Turpin, Pendle Council’s elections manager, said: “People aren’t always aware of the need to re-register each year to secure their right to vote.

“If anyone’s unsure if they returned their form, or have moved house since then and not re-registered at their new address, then they need to take a few minutes to check now.”

I was at a friends house on Walton Lane in Nelson the other day and a woman from the Labour Party, think she was called Yvette or Yvonne knocked on the door. I don't support Labour but to be honest she is the perfect Councillor, straight and honest with her views. Shame she's not standing in Colne, I would vote for her. Good on your girl!
As for the Conservative candidate, my friend was telling me what a complete tosser! his head is stuck up his backside, was trying to blame everyone but his own ruddy shower....Tosser!
