Electoral Services are responsible for compiling the Electoral Register for the Broxtowe area as well as organising all elections within the Borough, such as the election of Borough Councillors, Parish Councillors, County Councillors, MPs and MEPs and administering referendums and mayoral elections.
Broxtowe Borough Council has 44 councillors who represent particular areas known as wards. There are currently 21 wards returning one, two or three councillors, depending on the number of electors living in an area.
If your name is not included on the Electoral Register, you will not be able to vote. Registering with Council Tax does not update the Electoral Register so make sure you return the annual registration forms sent to your property and re-register if you move house. You can find out more information about registering to vote by following the 'How to Register' link.
