One million people set to lose their votes

Justin Madders, Labour’s MP for Ellesmere Port & Neston, responding to the news that changes in the electoral registration system mean around one million people will lose their votes, said:

“Here in Ellesmere Port & Neston there could be as many as 11,500 residents who are not registered to vote. The Tories have rushed through changes to the electoral registration system which means many local people will be disenfranchised unless they take urgent action to register.

Soon we have a big choice to make about whether Britain stays in the EU, but if people aren’t on the electoral register, they will not be able to vote and have their say. They could even face an £80 fine and find it harder to get a credit card or a mobile phone contract. 

It is important that everyone in Ellesmere Port & Neston registers to vote. It’s quick and easy - you can register in just three minutes by going to gov.uk/register-to-vote.”
