Three steps for the UK general election – register, read, vote (with links)

Three steps for the UK general election –

1. Register to vote

Simple to do, but crucial to do soon. Must be done by 22 May to vote on 8 June 2017. The official registration site is here. For students, you can register in both your term time and home address, and then vote in just one. If you want to know where you will make the most difference, take a look at this site.

2. Read the manifestos

Don’t just read what the newspapers say about them; read them.

  • Labour Party manifesto here
  • Conservative Party here.
  • Liberal Democrat here.
  • The Green Party here.
  • Plaid Cymru here
  • SNP manifesto is not yet available; their website is here.

3. Vote

You can’t do this without being registered; and you shouldn’t do it without being informed.

There is a good discussion of tactical voting here; and a spreadsheet giving ‘stop Tories’ options here. If you want a postal vote, you can apply here.

Lots more election data at Electoral Calculus.

(Happy to add other useful links if people add them in comments.)
