1 in 5 isn’t registered to vote in Yorkshire and the Humber

14 Mar 2018

The Electoral Commission estimates that 18% of people are not registered to vote in Yorkshire and the Humber, as half the region gets set to go to the polls on 3May 2018.

The Commission’s brand new campaign “Got 5?” is encouraging people across Yorkshire and the Humber to register online at gov.uk/register-to-vote before the 17 April deadline if they have local elections in their area.

It’s estimated between 590,000 and 730,000 aren’t registered to vote in the region.
