Around 75% people aged 65 and over normally vote. But it's estimated that just over 40% of 18-24 year olds will bother to register and vote. If you know someone who hasn't registered, nag them to have their say.

To check if you are registered or for further information contact Electoral Services, electoral-services@calderdale.gov.uk or call 01422 393103.
