Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will urge millions of eligible voters to register before the deadline at 11.59pm on Tuesday 26 November.
Fresh from launching the party’s manifesto, Labour leader Corbyn will be on the campaign trail in Stoke where he will urge people to register to vote before next Tuesday’s deadline.
Corbyn is expected to say: “To achieve real change, I’m calling on people to take just five minutes to get registered so they can make sure that their voice is heard.
“Over nine million eligible voters are still not registered to vote – that’s one-sixth of the voting population.
“We want to make the next five days the biggest voter registration drive that our country has ever seen.”
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
