Register to vote by 26 November

If all you want for Christmas is better funded public services, then register to vote today and get involved in campaigns in your local area.

UNISON members like you can really make the difference in seats across our region, whether its getting family members to register and vote or helping out with local campaigns.

Ways of voting

At a polling station: You can choose to vote in person at your local polling station on 12 December. Details of your local polling station will be on the card that comes in the post. You don’t need any ID to vote this way.

Postal vote: If you can’t get to a polling station on 12 December, it might be a good idea to register for a postal vote. You’ll receive the ballot paper through the post, then you vote and post it back. Or, if you miss the last post, take it to a polling station.

Voting by proxy: you can also nominate someone else to vote for you.

Who can vote?

In a general election British, Irish and Commonwealth citizens over 18 who are permanent residents of the UK can vote.

Who to vote for?

The political parties will publish their manifestos soon. Have a look at their policies to see which ones will invest in public services and protect your rights as a public sector worker.
