Don't forget to register to vote!

Everyone will be receiving electoral registration forms from Friday (Aug 20).

If you are not on the electoral register, it means you will not be able to vote in next year's local elections and therefore miss out on a good chance to have your say on how you think the Conservatives (with lib-dem collaboration) are doing at running the council!

Plus on the same day there is a referendum on the "Alternative Vote" system of voting.

Registration forms should have already arrived - mine did last week.  
Reading Borough council website has "You can complete, sign and return the form in the enclosed pre-paid envelope. If there are no changes to your family details you can confirm this by phone, SMS text, or internet, as explained on the registration form."

If you have 16 or 17 year olds in your house don't forget to add their (or your!) names to the register too, or you'll be kicking yourself for missing your first chance to vote.
