RESIDENTS are being urged to complete their electoral registration forms so that they can vote in next year's elections.Over 50,000 forms went out to all homes at the start of September but 14,000 households across the Exeter area have still not completed a return. People who fail to complete and return the form won't be included on the Register and will lose their right to vote. Jeff Chalk, Electoral Services Manager, said: "It's also worth remembering that the Register of Electors is used by financial bodies in the process of granting credit and, as well as missing out on the opportunity to vote, an individual who is not on the Register may find it difficult to open a bank account, for example."Anyone who hasn't received a form should contact the Electoral Services Office on (01392) 265141.
