The countdown to the Northumberland County Council and town and parish council elections is now on, and voters only have until April 13 to make sure they are registered.

If you are registered to vote you will have received a polling card through the door which will tell you whether you have a postal or a proxy vote in place, or which polling station you must visit to cast your vote.

If you have not yet received your polling card this may mean you are not on the electoral register and if you want to vote, you must act now.

If you are unclear about whether or not you are on the register, call the county council’s election team on 01670 624811 or email elections@northumberland.gov.uk
