Register to vote

ON THURSDAY, May 22, 2014 European Parliamentary elections are taking place across the country.

It’s crucial in the run up to the elections that the public know how to exercise their right to vote. Whether you’ve already decided who to vote for or are still thinking about how to cast your vote, there’s one vital step you need to take. You need to register to vote now as time is running out. The deadline for registration is Tuesday, May 6.

Why does this matter? If you’re not registered by the deadline then you won’t be able to have you say on Election Day. You must be on the current electoral roll in order to cast a vote.

Our research shows that 44 per cent of people who are not registered to vote mistakenly believe they are. Many people believe that if they are registered to pay council tax then they are automatically registered to vote. This just isn’t true.

Registering to vote is free, easy to do and only takes a few minutes. Visit www.aboutmyvote.co.uk and print off a registration form, fill in your details and send it back to the local electoral registration officer.

Remember – it’s your vote, don’t lose it!

Gareth Halliwell Electoral Commissioner Wales

Miilipede,Lord Snooty, Cleggy, Farrightrage. None of them are worth voting for. Dont vote - let the politicans know what you think of them. Boycott the polling booth on the 22nd

Tell me is there anyone worth voting for ?

Labour - supposed to represent working people, yet Labour controlled Newport Council lays off employees and takes on free labour workfare people to replace them - No thanks

Conservative - led by upper class twits who have never done a days work in their lives, are responsible for my living standards dropping by £1500 a year - no thanks

Liberals - sold principals for sniff of power , supported Conservatives - no thanks

Plaid - The Welsh UKIP , not quite as loopy , but nearly there - no thanks

UKIP - Xhenaphobic nutjobs, leader is amazing hypocrite. Moans about 1) Westminster MP's employing family members during expenses scandals , 2) EU workers taking British workers jobs. So employs his German wife as his secretary , ha ! Ha ! Couldn't make it up. - no thanks

And you got the cheek to tell me I should vote
