Imagine all disabled and young people voting – Jayne Linney

Imagine if 15 MILLION disabled people and young people all registered and voted in May 2015, writes Jayne Linney in her blog.

That’s the aim of Two different campaigns, Operation Disabled Vote has set up a web page aiming to ensure as many of the 11 Million disabled people in the UK are registered, ready to participate in Election 2015. If you need more reasons to refister/vote visit  DISABILITY COUNTS

The TUC are working with Bite The Ballot to reach the 4 Million UK young people, eligible to vote next year but who are unregistered.

FIFTEEN Million people, all who have been discrimnated against by the current regime. ready and willing to participate in electing the next Government; what would the outcome be?

My guess, is Not another Tory/right wing Government?

She could be right, folks. Read the rest on Jayne’s own site.

    I’m already registered as far as I know. If I vote TUSC or Green though it’ll just waste my vote because of the voting system.

      No. A wasted vote is for a party that you don’t support, and that doesn’t represent your views. Small parties remain small because people have this attitude, and it makes no sense. Even if they don’t win the seat, the more people who vote for the small party, the more notice everyone else takes of them. The more people who would normally think the way you do, begin to consider the small party as a plausible candidate for the future. The more the large parties begin to feel the pressure of losing support to the small party, and start to wonder whether maybe they need to review their policies. Labour are already feeling the pressure from the rapidly growing Greens, which is why they’ve set up a unit specifically to attempt to deal with the threat. And notice how far up Cameron’s agenda immigration has bounced since UKIP began making waves.

      No vote for one of the smaller parties will be a waste at this coming election – it could be a building block to a different brand of politics in the future! Unless you vote Lib Dem. HAH!

    I fear a rather lower than average turnout for this election, even though folk should be out in their thousands to get rid of the coalition. The new registration method has obviously been brought in by the Tories on the assumption that those “non-political, working-class scroungers and ne’er-do-wells” won’t bother filling out the forms. There can be no other reason for the method that has worked for generations, of the householder naming everyone in the home, being changed with all the accompanying costs. I just hope that they have got it wrong and the political engagement, as for the referendum in Scotland, is catching UK-wide.
