Are you registered to vote? There’s just one week left to do so if not!

Dear Member,

The deadline for registering to vote in the 6 May 2021 elections is fast approaching.

You need to be registered by 11:59pm on 19 April to vote in the following elections on 6 May:

  • local government elections and referendums in England
  • Police and Crime Commissioner elections in England and Wales
  • Scottish Parliament elections
  • Senedd (Welsh Parliament) elections
  • Mayor of London and London Assembly elections

In order to register, you must be aged 16 or over and must also be one of the following:

  • a British citizen
  • an Irish or EU citizen living in the UK
  • a Commonwealth citizen who has permission to enter or stay in the UK, or who does not need permission
  • a citizen of another country living in Scotland or Wales who has permission to enter or stay in the UK, or who does not need permission

You can register to vote online by following this link: https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

Once you have registered to vote, you may want to register for an early vote (postal vote) for the May elections. Whether you’re working from home, juggling work and childcare or working shifts on the frontline, the safest and easiest way to have your say is to vote by post.

Follow this link: https://postalvote.labour.org.uk/tu, fill in your details, print, sign and post your form to register. If you don’t have a printer, you can choose to be sent a printed form in the post to sign and return.

If you are registered to vote in England or Wales, your application form must arrive at your local Electoral Registration Office by 20 April at 5pm if you wish to vote by post on 6 May 2021 – so get it sorted today if you can! 

Please note that the postal vote deadline in Scotland has passed. You can still apply for a proxy vote in Scotland.
