Subject: We could win this election by 22nd May
Dear ,

This week a YouGov poll revealed that 18 – 40 year olds overwhelmingly support Labour, with Labour commanding a 15% lead over the Tories among young people like me.

Unfortunately 2.4 million young people are missing from the electoral register and millions more, of all ages, have never been inspired to vote. But this election is different. Now we have the chance to radically transform our society by electing a government for the many, not the elite few.

The deadline to register to vote is Monday 22nd May
. If millions of people register in the next two weeks, then we’ll have already won.

Here’s three things you can do to make it happen:

1. Don’t lose your vote
If you’re not already registered to vote, register now. It takes just 2 minutes, and all you need is your national insurance number. Remember, if you’re a UK resident from the Republic of Ireland or a Commonwealth country you’re eligible to vote.
If you’re not sure where you’ll be on 8th June, make sure you register for a postal vote. Just fill out this form and post or email it to your Electoral Registration Office. It must reach them by 5pm on 23rd May, so make sure to send it this week.
2. Get everyone you know to register

If every single one of us gets five people to register, we’ll win this election. Do your bit, make sure your friends and family are all registered to vote by 22nd May.

Share this video on your Facebook and forward this email to five people telling them to register to make their mark on this historic election.
3. Organise a voter sign-up session near you
Go to your nearest university, college campus or sixth form and get people registered. Hand out this flyer from Rize Up, a campaign to get young people to register and make their voices heard. Click here for information about how to run a session and email GE2017@peoplesmomentum.com if you’re organising a session so we can support you and let other local members know.

Our movement is powered by the collective power of ordinary people.
Donate today to make June the end of May.

If millions of us rise up and have our say, we will get Jeremy into Number 10. Let’s fix this rigged system and build a society for the many, not the few.
In solidarity,
Huda Elmi


  1. Great post. Some may not have National Insurance numbers; these can be obtained on 0300 200 3500. Takes 10 days for them to arrive.

  2. Can a Twitter icon be placed on your page so I can post it on. I am not savvy enough to do it , unless you send me instructions.

    1. Hi Ann, there is a Twitter button at the bottom of each article, as well as a Facebook share button. If you have trouble finding it, let me know.
