Are you registered to vote? Are you sure?

Now that people have to register to vote individually instead of allowing one person to sign up an entire household, nationally thousands of people are ‘falling off’ the Electoral Register, with students and young people particularly affected.

Voter registration initiatives are stepping up efforts to ensure people do not lose their right to vote in the 7 May General Election.

Operation Black Vote (OBV) will be in Lewisham this Wednesday.The OBV eXpress Bus will be open for people to register to vote online. This campaign is supported by the Cabinet Office and the Electoral Commission.

DEADLINE: You must register by 20th April to vote in the May General Election.

Don’t be irrelevant- register to vote.

Date: Wednesday 18 March 2015
Time: 9.30am-4.00pm
Location: Lewisham Library, Lewisham High Street

This event will encourage Black and Minority Ethnic communities to engage with our public institutions in order to address persistent issues such as education, policing, employment and racial inequality.
