The Local Elections are taking place on May 7th 2020, but on average just 35% of people vote in these elections.
We want to promote engagement in these important elections. To do this we’ve produced an online guide to them, helping people get informed about why they’re so important to engage in, but we also want to promote engagement via our eye-catching posters.
You can download them for free on our resources page, or we’ll send you a physical pack for free (you just need to pay £1.32 for the 2nd class postage).
In our physical packs you’ll receive;
- 1 x A3 Poster
- 4 x A4 Posters
- 5 x Register to Vote Posters
When you check out there’s an option to add a donation, we’d appreciate anything you can give as it will help us cover the costs of printing and advertising our online content.
Voting Counts was set up in 2014 by Rachael, who was studying for her A-levels, when she found that many of her friends did not intend to vote because they didn’t feel informed enough about politics.
“I founded Voting Counts after my friends were constantly asking me why they should vote and whom they should vote for, but as a politically active person myself I didn’t want to impose my own personal bias on them.
So I wanted to create somewhere my friends could actually go and learn about the importance of voting, as well as compare the parties in an unbiased way rather than hearing an often one-sided opinion from friends, family and the media. It’s important for young people to make their own informed decisions”
Voting Counts now has contributors from across the political spectrum, who all have the same aim of encouraging political engagement, while maintaining political neutrality to empower young adults to make their own informed decisions.
