Wrexham Council is urging residents to make sure that they are registered to vote ahead of two elections due to take place in 2021.

The local authority is updating the register and is sending out an Annual Canvass letter to all households across Wrexham.

If you haven’t yet responded to the annual canvass communication then you could miss out on having your say on who represents you in Welsh Government and who becomes the Police and Crime Commissioner when elections take place next May.

Next year’s election will also be the first that 16, 17 year olds and qualified foreign citizens aged 16 or over will be able to vote in the Senedd elections.



A spokesperson for Wrexham Council said: “If all those eligible to vote are already registered at your address you don’t need to do anything.

“Please make sure you add anyone over 14 in your household to make sure they don’t miss out on their opportunity to vote.

“You will need to respond if you have moved house since you last registered – something people often forget.

If any information is wrong or there’s people eligible to vote that aren’t included then you will need to respond.

“Please visit www.householdresponse.com/wrexham and make the necessary changes. Once this is done new people should register individually on www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
