Electoral Commission makes plea to voters

VOTERS in the North West are being reminded by The Electoral Commission to ensure their details are correct on the electoral register this autumn.

The annual canvass of electors is currently underway and every household in England will receive a registration form through their door. The names of all eligible voters in a household should be on this form. Any missing or incorrect information should be corrected, and completed forms returned to local authorities in the pre-paid envelope provided by mid November.

Households that do not receive a form by the end of October should contact the returning officer at their local authority. Contact details for local authorities can be found on the Commission's easy-to-use website www.aboutmyvote.co.uk. 

Each year on 1 December, following the autumn annual canvass, a new version of the electoral register is published. Electors can only vote if their name is on the register.

Names can be added later to the electoral register on a monthly basis through rolling registration, allowing those who have moved house to update their details at any point during the year. An online electoral registration form can be downloaded from www.aboutmyvote.co.uk.

Becky Lloyd, campaigns manager at The Electoral Commission, says:- "Politics affects every aspect of our lives, from the food we eat and the hours we work to local facilities for our children and the state of our streets. We are urging people to make sure they are registered so they don't lose their right to vote." 

RECORD NUMBERS ATTEND HEALTH OPEN DAY

Record numbers of visitors attended Edge Hill’s Faculty of Health Open Day at the Aintree Campus to gain advice on healthcare issues.

Over 250 people flocked to the Aintree Hospital, from the North-West region and beyond, to pick up advice on a range of courses in midwifery, nursing and operating department practice.

Senior Lecturer, Jim Gorman was delighted with the turn out, saying:-  "We were really pleased with the number of people who visited the Faculty and with the amount of interest shown in the programmes we offer, for both newcomers and qualified health care staff.  In particular the Operating Department Practitioner programmes generated lots of interest.  This lesser known health profession focuses on the care of patients undergoing all aspects of anaesthesia, surgery and recovery.”

The Faculty of Health delivers pre and post registration programmes and a range of continuing professional development opportunities, as well as being home to the Centre for Health Research and Evaluation.
