PEOPLE are being urged to join the electoral register.
Kirklees Council's electoral services department is sending registration forms to all households in Kirklees.
Electoral services manager Susan Hutson said it was important for people to register again - even if their circumstances had not changed since they last registered.
She added: "They can't just ignore it or they will keep getting reminders."
People whose circumstances have not changed can either sign and return the form without making any changes.
Or they can confirm their details by calling Freephone 0800 197 4918.
Anyone registering for the first time, or whose details have changed, should complete the form and return it as soon as possible.
Ms Hutson said it was particularly important to register for next year, as there could be a General Election.
She said: "The fact that there may be a general election might encourage more people to register."
She added that it was difficult to tell whether the success of postal voting for the local elections would also lead to more people registering to vote.
Information about registration is on 01484 222400.
