  2. Salford City Council is reminding residents the clock is ticking for those who have not registered to vote. And the council is encouraging those who have already registered to consider applying for a postal vote to ensure they make their mark even if they’d prefer to stay at home. People have until midnight on Monday 19 April to register to vote - and until Tuesday 20 April to apply for a postal vote.

I’d encourage all our residents to make sure they are registered to vote. Five minutes and your national insurance number is all it takes to register. If you’ve just turned 18, are new to Salford or recently moved to a new home, you’ll need to make sure you’re registered to vote in the May elections. “We are working hard behind the scenes to make sure the election runs as safely and smoothly as possible during the current COVID-19 pandemic. The safety of members of the public and employees is of the upmost priority so it’s important for residents to remember to wear face coverings to help keep people safe. Our polling stations will have a range of safety measures in place, but if you would prefer to stay at home please consider registering for a postal vote, so that you can still have your say.

Tony cuts a popular figure within Salford, having amassed a considerable following over the years due to his immense encyclopaedic knowledge of the cities history as well as his wit, humour and philanthropy. Speaking on the steps of Swinton Civic Centre, Tony told us: Tony went on to speak about his election pledges: Tony hopes to have his full politically correct 'personifesto' out later this week once it has been finalised and printed for free on the photocopiers at Eccles Library..
