North Down DUP Assembly Member Gordon Dunne has urged people to ensure they are on the Electoral Register after over two thousand, three hundred (2310) people dropped off the register in 2016 in North Down. Mr Dunne added:

“At the last election a number of people found they had been removed from the electoral register or did not have the correct identification to allow them to vote. Given the importance of taking part in the democratic process I would encourage local people to take this opportunity to ensure they are on the register or if they have recently moved house and need to update their details with the Electoral Office.

If you need any forms or advice on electoral registration or want to get an Electoral Identity card, I would encourage anyone who has any queries on this to please get in touch with me. In Northern Ireland, there were over sixty thousand people who dropped off the register during 2016, despite being registered for the May 2016 Election. 

It is vital that local people are able to get back on the register and also given an opportunity for those who have never been registered to get re-registered and be able to vote in any future elections or referendums which may happen in Northern Ireland.'
