Jeremy Corbyn aims for the ‘biggest voter registration drive that our country has ever seen’

The Canary

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 need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.
