This weekend Labour is having a #MissingMillion national campaign weekend to try and sign up as many people as possible to register to vote. We want activists across the country to take part, going to homes where people are not on the register and asking them to sign up. We have to act, because the Government have ignored independent advice to wait until the end of 2016 to fully implement Individual Electoral Registration, so that any difficulties could be ironed out.
One million people look set to disappear from the electoral register on 1 December this year. And that’s on top of the million or more eligible adults already missing from the electoral register.
The Missing Million Campaign will take place from Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th October. You can download a campaign pack by clicking here. The hashtag is #MissingMillion. People can register to vote online here: https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
