TIME is running out to register to vote in the upcoming local elections in Wiltshire.

Wiltshire Council has put out a reminder to residents in the county this week that anyone intending to vote in the elections must be registered to vote by April 13.

Anyone who wants to stand as a candidate should register by April 4.

With all 98 unitary seats up for election, as well all parish and town councils, the elections in Wiltshire will be one of the biggest in the country.

The county will go to the polls between 7am-10pm on May 4, with the results being announced on May 5.

Carlton Brand, Wiltshire’s returning officer for local elections and Wiltshire Council corporate director, said: “The scale of the local elections here in Wiltshire is one of the largest in the UK and we are working hard behind the scenes to ensure the process goes smoothly.

“The outcome of the elections will affect local people’s daily lives as well as determining how over £300m is allocated annually to important public services across the county.

“So I urge everyone eligible to make sure they are registered to vote and have their voice heard.”
