Mayday madness in Oxford

Early on May morning, people gather at the Magdalen Bridge in Oxford to celebrate May Day in traditional style. We will be celebrating May Day by campaigning for votes in the Oxford City Council election.

Oxford has 6 Green Party councillors. With just two more we will become the official opposition. But Labour has had 70 canvassers out in the ward of our group leader, so we have a fight on our hands.

This weekend is the big push before polling day. Come an learn how a large scale campaign is run. We have 24 candidates, a full slate, and excellent canvassing software.

In the early morning we will be delivering polling remember to vote slips in blocks of flats (while the trademen's buzzers work). Then in the afternoon we will be knocking on doors finding more Green voters to get out on Thursday.

We can meet you at the Glocester Green bus station at 10:30, or call or email us to get details of where and when you can help.

Please sign up for one or more of the shifts, so we can make sure there are campaign materials available for all of you. We provide training, and mentors to show you how to canvass.

If you want to stay the weekend, email <[email protected]> now, and we will find a local member to stay with.
