People on the Isle of Wight are being urged not to risk losing their chance to vote in the forthcoming Police and Crime Commissioner elections.
The last date to register to vote in the election, being held on 15 November, is Wednesday 31 October.
The Isle of Wight Council said that over the last two months, households on the Island would have received an annual voter registration form, which they have asked Islanders to return as soon as possible.
The local authority advised that those who have not received, or have lost, the form should call Electoral Services on 01983 821000.
Clive Joynes elections manager, said: "You have to be on the electoral register if you want to have your say in the first Police and Crime Commissioner elections.
"Some people wrongly assume that paying council tax means that you are registered to vote. I am urging all those eligible to vote to return their form as soon as possible," he urged.
