One million people set to lose their vote

IER graphicTom Blenkinsop MP, responding to the news that changes in the electoral registration system mean around one million people will lose their votes, said:  

“The Tories have rushed through changes to the electoral registration system, and now around one million people are set to lose their votes.  

“We will soon we have a big choice to make about whether Britain stays in the EU, but if people are not on the electoral register, they will not be able to vote and have their say.  

“If you’re not registered to vote you can even face an £80 fine and find it harder to get a credit Card or a mobile phone contract.  

“It is important that everyone registers to vote. It’s quick and easy – you can register in just three minutes by going to gov.uk/register-to-vote.”
