In Tameside, we are due to elect both local councillors and the Mayor of Greater Manchester this May. Although there are no guarantees in the coronavirus crisis, all parties are keen to see this democratic engagement go ahead safely, after being postponed last year. By far the best bet is to register now for a postal vote, if you haven’t already. Obviously, traditional campaigning in the form of leafleting and door knocking isn’t appropriate as we all stay home and minimise our interactions during lockdown. In the meantime, you can follow trusted sources on social media. For example, you can follow Tameside Labour Councillors here and Andy Burnham here.
