At the local elections in May, the Conservatives want to make it harder for people to vote.
In five local authorities, people will have to show identification, like a driver’s license or passport. And the Tories have already pledged to roll-out Voter ID nationwide before a single pilot has taken place.
We know this would make it much harder for people to vote – and it will disproportionately affect people who are young, disabled, elderly, homeless, trans, or from minority ethnic communities.
That’s why more than 40 charities, like Age UK, Stonewall and the Salvation Army, are telling the Tories to urgently rethink their plan, to keep our democracy as open and accessible as possible.
If you agree, stand with us and tell the Tories: don’t create barriers to our democracy.
