Whatever your view on politics or politicians, the only way to have it heard is by voting – and time is running out to register.

The final day for registering to vote is next Monday, May 22.

All it takes is a few minutes on a government website to sort out.

You will need your National Insurance number and, if you’re a British citizen living abroad, your passport as well.

In the last election, the national turnout was 66.4 per cent – meaning millions of people abstained.

Mike Cooke, acting returning officer and chief executive of Camden Council, said: “We already have over 130,000 registered voters who are eligible to take part in this election in Camden.

“However, if you are not yet on the register, or have moved house since the referendum vote last year, make sure you register before Monday’s deadline to allow you to have your say in the election on 8 June.”
