On 1 December up to 2 million people could easily drop off the electoral register. That’s on top of the 8 million who are not on the register at all.
That’s 10 million people – or 1 in 5 of all eligible adults – who won’t be able to vote.
As for Sheffield - imagine Bramall Lane and Hillsborough both filled to capacity. That would still be less than the number of people likely to be missing from the register from 1 December.
These changes are happening because the Government is rushing changes to the way we register to vote, against the advice of its election watchdog, the Electoral Commission.
LabourSheffield says: ‘Whether you love us, loathe us or really can't make your mind up some days – it’s your right to have your say. #NoVoteNoVoice ’
So before it's too late...
Check if you are on the register by calling Sheffield Elections Office 0114 2734093
If you're not on then sort it online here - It takes 5 minutes – and you’ll need your National Insurance number if you have one. And remember if you are a student you can register at both your home address and your Sheffield address.
Once you’re sorted than get friends, family and house sharers to check as well.
You can print off the form here if people want to fill in a paper copy. Completed forms need to be posted to Elections Office, Sheffield City Council, Town Hall, Surrey Street, Sheffield S1 2HY or handed in at the Town Hall Main Reception.
If you try to get this sorted and are still having difficulty then email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring and leave a message on 0114 2724964.
We’ll help as far as we can. And no-one will ask you anything about how you vote.
Let’s avoid it becoming Novotember and and make sure we find Sheffield’s #MissingVoters
