Vaccinations

It remains important to get yourself vaccinated, as the best possible protection for yourself and those around you.

Drop-in clinics are opportunities for you to call in to get vaccinated without making an appointment. There are more drop in clinics that are set up across the county where you can receive first or second dose (as long as first dose was at least eight weeks ago, and the clinic is offering the same vaccine). You can see the time and dates of the clinics here: https://bit.ly/GetVaxxedLLR

Annual Canvass 2021

Posted: Fri, 16 Jul 2021 14:24 by Lucy Flavin

Don't lose your voice - residents in the borough of Melton urged to check their voter registration details from Melton Borough Council.

Local residents are being warned not to lose their voice on decisions that affect them by making sure their electoral registration details are up to date. More »

The annual canvass ensures that Melton Borough Council can keep the electoral register up to date, identifying any residents who are not registered to vote so that they can be encouraged to do so.

Edd de Coverly Electoral Registration Officer at Melton Borough Council said:

"It's important that residents look out for messages from Melton Borough Council, so we can make sure we have the right details on the electoral register for every address in the Borough of Melton. We will send you an email or form during August 2021 for you to respond to. To make sure you are able to have your say at elections simply follow the instructions sent to you.

"If you're not currently registered, your name will not appear in the messages we send. If you want to register, the easiest way is online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote, or we'll send you information explaining how to do this in the post."

"As we carry out this important work to update the electoral register we continue to follow public health guidelines, including respecting social distancing."

People who have moved recently are particularly encouraged to look out for the voter registration messages from Melton Borough Council and check the details. Research by the Electoral Commission, published in 2019, indicates that recent home movers are far less likely to be registered than those who have lived at the same address for a long time. Across Great Britain, 92% of people who have been at their property for more than sixteen years will be registered, compared to 36% of people who have lived at an address for less than one year.

Melanie Davidson, Head of Support and Improvement at the Electoral Commission, said:

"It's really important that everyone who is entitled to vote is able to do so. Checking the messages that you will get from your local authority is the easiest way to see if you're registered to vote. If you're not, make sure you provide the necessary information to your local authority when it is needed and register to vote online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote."

Information on registering to vote is available on the Electoral Commission website.

Any residents who have any questions can contact their local registration team at Melton Borough Council. » Less
