ALTHOUGH the General Election has yet to be called, the Elections team at Torridge District Council is already working hard to make sure that all eligible residents can have their say on polling day.
The council will be sending out forms to households throughout Torridge over the coming months to compile a new electoral register that will be the basis for any elections held next year, including the General Election.
By completing and returning the form voters will be making sure they will be able to have their say on what matters to them.
Paula Hunter, Electoral Services Officer for Torridge, said: "For some people, this may be the first General Election that they get to take part in, but it's simple to register. All you have to do is complete the annual canvass form that will be coming through your letter box in the next couple of months, and you'll be able to help choose the people who make the decisions which affect your everyday life."

Leader of the Council James Morrish said: "We all have our own views and opinions on how our local area should be run as well as a viewpoint on national government. By using our right to put an 'X' next to a candidate's name, we are giving ourselves a chance to be heard."
