Anyone who has not yet registered to vote is being encouraged to do so now in time for the district council elections on 4 May.
East Cambridgeshire District Council is writing to more than 1300 people it believes are eligible to vote but have not registered.
John Hill, Electoral Registration Officer at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “Voting in local elections is your chance to vote for what is important to you.
“By voting in district elections you are having your say on how money is spent in your local communities, what public transport support there is, how we look after our local environment and what infrastructure – such as doctors’ surgeries, youth facilities, cycle paths and job opportunities are provided.
“If you are on the electoral register this can also help with your credit score which can be important for things like buying a car, opening a bank account, getting a mobile phone contract or applying for a mortgage.”
