Gillian Marshall, Wakefield Council’s electoral registration officer, said: “Even if you think you are already registered, it’s important to double check.

“Many people think they are automatically registered because they pay council tax, but this isn’t true. Registering is quick and easy, so make sure you’re registered before the deadline.”
