TO have your say in the 2015 local and general elections you must be registered to vote, and the deadline is December 30.
But to vote you must first have registered both on the Padron – the town hall register – and on the voting register.
It’s a simple process and your vote could make a big difference wherever you live.
Registration can still be made online, or by going in person to your town hall.
A second excellent reason to be registered on the padron is that the funding for each town’s infrastructure is based on the number of inhabitants.
Taking Marbella, as an example, the population is officially 140,000, while in reality it is more like 270,000.
This means the town is only receiving a fraction of the infrastructure funding that it is entitled to.
