Guest post by Josh Williams: Some residents in Reading have been asked to re-register on the electoral roll this year. You can do so here - www.gov.uk/register-to-vote - and when you've registered (or re-registered) you should get a letter from Reading Borough Council confirming you've been added to the roll.
Some residents have reported to us that they haven't received that letter - don't panic!
If you want to confirm you are on the electoral roll you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Electoral Services on: 0118 937 3717. We've confirmed with them that they will be happy to help.
And if you want to you can even go into reception at the new Civic Offices and look at the newly published register yourself!
If you think you might be away (or know someone who will be) at election time next year (already set by the coalition Government for May 7th) contact us and we can let you have the forms for a postal or proxy vote.
