Join Labour’s ‘get out the vote’ effort in Peterborough on Thurs

Expected low turnout means ‘GOTV’ even more crucial than normal
Labour’s local candidate Lisa Forbes

An expected low turnout in the key Peterborough by-election this week means that the usual ‘get out the vote’ (GOTV) effort to mobilise Labour’s voters are even more critical than normal as Labour seeks to retain the seat it won in 2017.

Labour members and supporters who can get to Peterborough to help are asked to report to the location below any time from 9am to the close of polling stations:

Unite the Union office
15 Church Walk

Every little helps, so if you can get there for the full day or just an hour or two, it will be help secure the right result and ensure that the hundreds of members and supporters, including Jeremy Corbyn and his MPs, who have flooded to Peterborough to help campaign will be rewarded with the Labour win that the people of the city need.

  1. I wish her and Labour all the very best of luck for a success , I think what with the Israeli Govt RW Zionist smear campaigns again in full swing we are all going to need it .
    Good luck Lisa and to all those who are helping her .

  2. I suspect the media are using the conservative leadership contest as an opportunity to campaign for Tories in Peterborough. This plus anti-semitism, Campbell, is a huge opportunity to push conservativism and dis labour

  3. It’s not the low turnout that will destroy your vote here, it’s the fact almost two thirds voted to leave the EU in the referendum and labour has done all it can to ignore them and try to thwart their wishes.
    The result: you’ll be getting a Brexit Party MP in Peterborough.

  4. I’m a dreamer
    If Labour vote holds we win, if it’s a Brexit protest vote we lose narrowly
    Good news is on LL today, that’s the end of any coup and bad news for TWatson
    When we win on Thursday, on Friday suspend Pantomime Dame and welcome back Geordie Galloway,
    GG will sort Scotland out, its appalling what’s going on up there in the party, GG has what it takes and will have JC’s back
    Next week confirm Alistair Campbell has left the party
    Keep the faith, keep the dream of a better country
