1.2m adults could drop off the electoral register when the new Voter Registration rules come into force on 1 December.

The Electoral Commission has just said that there are 1.2m adults eligible to be on the electoral register in London who are currently not registered. This is in addition to the 415,000 who could drop off when the new Voter Registration rules come into force on 1 December.

That means that within a few weeks there will be as many as 1.6m people in London who will not be on the electoral register. This equates to over 27% of all eligible adults.

This is both astonishing and alarming. And if you agree, then help do something about it.

Next Thursday, on 12 November, Hope not Hate are organising the leafleting of all train and tube stations across London. Will you be willing to leaflet at your nearest station?

Over the weekend of 14/15 November Hope Not Hate are also asking London supporters to join them in Hackney, where 23% of its current voters will shortly drop off the register. Over the weekend 14/15 November they plan to leaflet every property in the borough.

It is incredible that as many as 1.6m people in London will not be registered after 1 December. This is bad for democracy and bad for London.
