To get more Green councillors elected, we need lots of helpers on election day, 5 May 2016. Please come and help wherever there are elections this year.
Local Green Parties need people to:
- Telephone or visit green voters to remind them to get to their polling station.
- Help voters get to the polls (from giving lifts to baby sitting).
- Sit outside polling stations smiling at voters and writing down voter numbers (Telling).
- Walk or cycle around town, with Green Party banners, handing out pledge cards.
(so everyone is reminded that there is an election where they can vote Green.)
- Help at our committee rooms (from making tea and coffee to entering data into computers).
- In the evening, as the ballots are opened, tally the votes (so we know where people are voting green).
- We also need help in the days before polling day, preparing and delivering eve of poll leaflets.
There are council elections in half of the South East, including:
- Oxford, Cherwell, West Oxfordshire
- Reading, Wokingham
- Worthing, Adur, Crawley
- Southampton, Portsmouth, Gosport, Eastleigh, Fareham, Winchester
- Mole Valley, Reigate, Hart, Rushmoor, Woking
- Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells, Hastings
- Milton Keynes
Get in touch with your local party and offer to help, or come to one of the linked target campaigns where we can win this year.
