Regardless of who we are or where we’re from, it’s important everyone has a say in our democracy.
In Wales, everyone aged 16 and over can vote and Local Democracy Week (October 9-15) will focus on encouraging more people to get involved in our democracy.
Being involved in democracy means using your vote, but to be able to do that you need to be registered.
This is the time of year, when Wrexham Council is carrying out the annual canvass and is a good time to make sure that you are registered and able to vote when there is an election, including the Police and Crime Commissioner Election due to be held on Thursday, May 2, 2024 and the General Election, which could be called anytime up to January 2025.
The annual canvass means that over the last few weeks, you should have received a letter or email from us asking you to confirm your details. Please don’t ignore it! Simply completing this form means that you’ll be all set to vote when election time comes around.
To help save the council money during the last stages of the canvass, we are asking that you complete the form by October 13. Doing this means that we will have all the correct information for your household and we won’t need to contact you again. If we haven’t had your response by October 13, canvassers will be visiting properties that have not responded to make sure our details are correct and will be able to help you complete the form if you need them to.
