EPSOM & Ewell residents have started to receive booklets to raise awareness of the Police and Crime Commissioner elections.
The Electoral Commission launched this campaign last week and 21 million houses across England (outside London) and Wales will receive information about the elections and how to vote.
A television, radio and online advertising campaign has begun and will run until polling day, Thursday, November 15.
Samantha Mills, head of campaigns at the Electoral Commission, said: "These are new elections, taking place at an unfamiliar time of year and using a voting system that has not been widely used before.
"Over the next few days, voters will receive our booklet with all the information they need to cast their vote with confidence. This includes what the elections are for, when they are taking place and how to vote.
"It also has information on polling station opening hours and how to request a postal vote. But if you want to vote, you need to be on the electoral register."
The booklet also contains details of the Government's candidate information website, this is where voters can find out who is standing for election in Surrey.
Epsom & Ewell residents can contact the Council's Electoral Services team on 01372 732120 or 01372 732152 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to check whether or not they are registered.
