Have you registered to vote in the upcoming general election? If not, you need to do it quick.

The countdown to the registration deadline is on.

If you live in England, Wales or Scotland, you need to sign up before midnight to have a say in who takes the hot seat at Downing Street on 12 December.

If you’re unable to visit a polling station on voting day, you’ll need to get your name down for a postal vote before 17:00 this evening.

You can also get someone to vote on your behalf; the deadline for proxy votes is 4 December.
