Carshalton and Wallington MP Tom Brake has urged voters to make sure they are registered to vote, with less than one month left until the European Referendum.
On the 23rd June, the UK will hold a nationwide referendum to decide whether to remain part of the European Union. Residents need to be registered to vote in order to take part in this referendum.
Registering to vote only takes around five minutes, and can be done here: www.gov.uk/register-to-vote A National Insurance number is required. The deadline for registration is the 7th June.
Residents who were registered to vote in the recent Mayoral elections and still live at the same address do not need to register again.
Tom has taken part in a range of events and events to promote the ‘Remain’ side of the argument. Two weeks ago Tom led the local campaign with 4 stalls around the borough, delivered leaflets to commuters in Wallington, Hackbridge and Carshalton and spoke at events at Carshalton Boys, John Fisher and Wallington County Grammar with more events planned.
“The European Referendum is going to be a hugely important vote for the future of our country – not just for this generation, but for those to come. The result will have repercussions not just for our economy now, but also for Britain’s place in the world in the future. We are better off and safer in Europe, and are better able to face the global challenges if we work together with our closest neighbours. It is vitally important that everyone gets to have their say on this vote, so I urge residents to make sure that they are registered ahead of the deadline.”
