Raising awareness about changes to the voting system
The Greater London Authority (GLA) and Shout Out UK have launched phase two of an unprecedented campaign to help under-represented and under-registered Londoners access their right to vote. Boroughs, civil society groups and education institutions are supporting the campaign which is raising awareness of changes to the voting system
Almost one in three Londoners (32 per cent) are unaware of the new requirement for photo ID to vote. Elections across England last month saw thousands of eligible voters unable to exercise their democratic rights, and under-represented communities are most likely to be disenfranchised by the voting system changes.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of the changes to the voting system. You can find out about how to register to vote here.
