Quiz on local democracy

A QUIZ has been launched to test Hucknall residents’ knowledge of local democracy.

The initiative is part of a promotion to encourage people to complete registration forms so they are eligible to vote in local-council elections and the General Election.

Quiz sheets are available at the council offices on Watnall Road or by logging on at www.ashfield-dc.gov.uk.

Completed forms can be dropped into the same office or completed and submitted online by Monday November 7.

The top prize up for grabs is an original piece of artwork by painter Robert Lee.

The quiz is seen as a fun way of encouraging voters to register their details.

Local elections give residents a say in who makes decisions on services ranging from roads to recycling, street cleaning and bin-emptying.
