Manchester residents are being urged to check they are registered to vote in time for next month’s council elections and referendum.
Would-be voters have until April 18 to ensure they are on the electoral register in time for the May 3 elections.
Electors will have the opportunity to select one councillor in each of the council’s 32 wards, and also vote in the referendum to decide how Manchester City Council is run.
A Manchester City Council spokesman said: "If you know you're already on the electoral register there's no need to do anything.
“But if you're not sure and you intend to vote it pays to check. If you know you're not registered, but want to be, you should contact us as soon as possible."
The referendum will allow voters to choose whether or not they want to have a directly-elected mayor or not.
Residents can download an application form from the council's website at www.manchester.gov.uk/elections or ask for a form to be sent to them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 0161 2341212.
