Did you know that the way we register to vote has changed? Now, everyone has to individually register themselves, using their National Insurance Number. A college, university or family member can't register you anymore.
On 5 May, there are 2 elections taking place in London alone and another five across the UK, so I made sure to check that I’m registered well before the 18 April deadline. But I want to make sure you DON’T GET FROZEN OUT either, because I know you care as much as I do!
It takes just two minutes, so please:
-- Check if you are already registered by contacting your Electoral Services. You can find their details here - http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk/register-to-vote/find-your-local-authority
-- Just register online now, if you did not register under the new system or if you moved home since - www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
And then, why not join me and others in making sure 1.7million people in London and 5mllion across the UK DON’T GET FROZEN out of 7 elections!
-- Join a Voter Registration event near you
-- Run your own Voter Registration drive

They think we don’t CARE! But we do, so let’s show them.
Thank you and happy defrosting
