Corby Council is reminding the people who have not yet registered to vote in the forthcoming by-election to do so by 4pm tomorrow (Wednesday October 31).

The by-election takes place on Thursday, November 15, and only those who have registered to vote will be given the right to have their say.

The council canvassed the whole of the borough between August and October and 25,452 households responded out of the 26,670 canvassed. Time is now ticking for the remaining households to contact the council and register.

All residents are required to register by law and will not only lose their right to vote but could be fined up to £1,000 if they do not comply. To request a registration form contact the Elections Office on 01536 464012 or email
