Why our community must register to vote

Many of our people are disillusioned and despondent with the government of today and see little point in registering to vote. However, it is important to exercise your democratic right but to do this you must first be registered with your local council.  

Are you also aware that if you are not on the electoral role, you will struggle to get credit or to open a bank account? Similarly, if you wish to take out a hire purchase agreement for essential replacements, you may find that your application is blocked. 

Do not think that your vote counts for nothing. Exercising your democratic rightgives you a say in how you wish to be governed; many citizens in the world are denied this basic freedom. Therefore we urge you to register today.
