The deadline is looming for Islington residents to register to vote in the May 22 Local and European Elections.

Residents who wish to have a say in who runs the borough must apply to be on the electoral roll by 6 May to vote and ensure their voice is heard.

Islington has more than 155,000 people eligible to vote - 10,000 more than last time council elections took place in 2010, including many first time voters.

Lesley Seary, chief executive of Islington Council, said: “It’s very easy to register to vote – if you haven’t registered already, get in touch today so you can have your say.”
