Returning Officer Colin Everett said:
“Flintshire County Council has recently sent poll cards to electors. If you have not received a poll card please contact our Elections Office on 01352 702300 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to check whether you are registered to vote. If you are not yet registered access the national online system at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
“The Elections Team are able to quickly assist residents with their enquiries. If you have already responded to the Annual Electoral Register Canvass to confirm or update your details, and you have registered individually by providing your date of birth and National Insurance Number (if not already registered), then there is no need re-register.
“Please only contact the Elections Team if you still need to register.”
