The UK Government recently confirmed that the 2021 local elections will be going ahead, with increased support to ensure that polling stations are Coronavirus secure and we can exercise our democratic right to vote: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/may-2021-polls-delivery-plan.
The period since March 2020 has been very difficult, something I know all too personally.
We must not allow the pandemic to stifle public debate and democracy.
To ensure that we maximise turnout in these crucial elections, Labour is calling on constituents to sign up for postal votes – as evidence suggests those with a postal vote are overwhelmingly more likely to vote than those without.
I urge everyone to please follow this link to sign up: https://postalvote.labour.org.uk/
