He took time out to explain the importance of registering to vote and confirmed the fact that it is a legal requirement, although not enforced it is an encouraging process that is used to ensure people register, but, they are losing their voice when they are not even registered.
He did point out also that the system will be changing from being controlled by the head of the household and being the responsibility of individuals in a property instead.
He pointed out the myth that by not being registered places you under the radar by confirming if you have a bank account, received Benefit or pay Council Tax or indeed have a mortgage your existence is on the record.He has offered his assistance publically to our Campaign and we look forward to working with him and the Birmingham elections Office in the future.
We had several phone calls today about this encouraging other to register to vote.
Discussions took place with callers about Chris Huhne and they consensus was he should have been given Community Service.
With regard to the rebranding on Edgbaston Cricket Ground concerns were expressed by a caller from Ladywood, yes Ladywood, that her tower block has had no maintenance for the past 7 years. A matter that we will be taking up next week.
It was a delight today to hear people phoning in about registering to vote.
Remember, you have a voice use it.
