The Importance of Registering to Vote
The Labour Party in Brent and nationally had a number of street stalls promoting electoral registration at the weekend. Speaking to some one at the stall outside Willesden Library, it seems many people don't realise the importance of this. The Tory government has switch ed the rules to discourage registration in a tactic that is known in the USA as "voter suppression". The register for December this year will then be used as the basis for redrawing constituency boundaries so that it is easier for the Tories to win future General Elections. You can register to vote here.
