Joan Ryan, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Enfield North, has launched a Vote by Post campaign to encourage voters to register for a postal vote by 21st April.
In the last year one million voters have disappeared from the Electoral Register across the country. The sharp decline in the numbers of registered voters only amplifies a long-term problem which has seen turnout fall dramatically in recent elections.
Joan Ryan, Labour’s candidate for Enfield North, said:
“In the last year one million voters have disappeared from the Electoral Register. We don’t want even more people to miss out because for one reason or another they don’t make it to the polling station on Election Day.
Every election thousands of people miss out on having their say. Having a postal vote will ensure everyone in Enfield North gets the chance to vote in this General Election in May.
Applying for a postal vote ensures voters in Enfield North can have their say in this year’s General Election. This campaign comes off the back of Labour’s recent announcement to get people back on the electoral register. Voters have until Monday 20 April to register to vote and until Tuesday 21 April to register for a postal vote. It’s quick and easy to apply at http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk/.”
