TIME is running out for people who have not yet registered to vote in the forthcoming General Election and local elections.

It is anticipated that Gordon Brown will go to Buckingham Palace next week and that the General Election will be called for May 6.

In any case voters will be going to the polls to elect 51 councillors in 17 wards in Tower Hamlets and to have their say in the mayoral referendum to decide if they want a directly elected mayor.

People who have not yet registered to vote need to hand in their application form by midnight on Tuesday April 20.

The deadline for postal votes or proxy votes is 5pm on Tuesday April 20.

Forms are available from the council's democratic services department, Idea Stores, one stop shops or can be downloaded from its website.

Voters have to be 18, UK, Irish, EU or Commonwealth subjects and live in Tower Hamlets.
