A BFBS news report says that thousands of members of the Armed Forces could lose their chance to vote this year if they don't fill out a voter registration form.

Every year service personnel across the UK and away on deployment can't have their say in elections because they don't register to vote in time.

BAFF reported last week that 45% of armed forces voters who think they are registered are not properly registered after all.


And there are local elections taking place in many parts of the UK on Thursday 3 May 2012. For those who are not already properly registered, the registration deadline to vote in these elections is only a few weeks away.
