The quickest and easiest way to register to vote is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote People can also register at the Town Hall in Bridge Street, Peterborough. They must bring documents to verify their name and address (a utility bill or council tax bill), and either a passport or driving licence to provide photographic ID.

If you're registered to vote but won't be able to vote in person at your polling station next month, then you still have time to apply for a postal or a proxy vote. The deadline to register for a postal vote is 5pm on Wednesday 18 April.

Applications for a proxy vote must be received by 5pm on Wednesday 25 April.

To request an application form, please contact the Elections helpline telephone number on 01733 452249 or email: [email protected]
