BLACK VOTES MATTER

BLACK LIVES MATTER



We all want change, and the best way we can get change in a democracy is to use the power of the vote in local and general elections.


Register to vote now, all it takes is 5 minutes!


Black votes count and we want to support and enable minority communities to claim our place in British democracy.


Did you now a voting collective community has real potential to significantly influence the outcome in many seats at local and general elections?


BUT you need to be registered to vote and mark the ballot, so why not register today so when the times comes your already good to go!


And if you have a child reaching the age of voting get support them to register early too, again it only takes 5 minutes.
