Thursday 5th February is National Voter Registration Day. With only 92 days until the General Election, it’s vital that everyone ensure they are registered to vote for what could be the closest General Election in a generation.
The government’s changes to voter registration mean that many thousands of people, in particular students and other young people, may not be on the electoral register. If you don’t have a vote, you don’t have a voice.
Oxford Labour supports National Voter Registration Day, which aims to get 250,000 more people on the electoral register. Andrew Smith MP and Labour Councillors in Oxford have been helping on voter registration stalls in Oxford all of this week.
