City council elections will take place next year

Holiday park residents can still vote in elections, says council

People who live in holiday parks still have the right to vote in elections.

That’s the message from Canterbury City Council, which is holding its own elections next year,

It is currently conducting its annual campaign to get as many people as possible to register to vote.

Council Chief Executive Colin Carmichael said: “We want everyone who is eligible to have a vote and make their voice heard at forthcoming elections.

“If you live in a caravan in a holiday park for most of the year it counts as your main residence and, contrary to popular opinion, you can register to vote.

“We realise some parks don’t allow post to be sent to individual caravans so we want to do all we can to make the process of registering as easy as possible.”

If you register to vote in a caravan park, you may not receive a polling card letting you know an election is around the corner and where to go to vote. You can vote without one.

To register, visit the council’s website and search for register to vote.
