Let Us Vote: Take action
We’re campaigning for the right to vote for all UK residents, and all UK citizens living abroad. Join us on August 31 – September 1.23rd August 2019
On August 31st and September 1st, we will be taking to the streets to demand that millions of disenfranchised people be given the basic right to vote.
In General Elections and in referendums, UK residents from countries outside of the Commonwealth and Ireland cannot vote. Neither can most UK citizens living abroad. All together, up to 10 million people are denied a vote by the current rules.
We are living in a time of rising racism and anti-migrant sentiment. It is fundamentally wrong that so many millions of people whose lives are deeply affected by developments at Westminster are currently denied a vote.
So join us on the days of action for whatever you can help with. We’ll be organising stunts, protests, stalls and leafleting sessions; collecting signatures and writing to MPs. Get in touch and we’ll send you materials and details of any events in your area.
