People in Flintshire don’t have long left to register to vote for the upcoming election, with the deadline set for 23.59 on Tuesday, 18th June.

The election will take place on 4th July, and registering is a crucial step to ensure your voice is heard.

Once registered, a polling card will be sent to your address, indicating your designated polling station.
