14 Mar 2018

The Electoral Commission estimates that 24% of black voters in the UK are not registered, as nearly half of England gets set to go to the polls for local elections on 3 May 2018. The Commission’s brand new campaign “Got 5?” is encouraging people to register online at gov.uk/register-to-vote before the 17 April deadline if they have local elections in their area.

It’s also estimates that 20% of Asian voters aren’t registered to vote, whilst nearly a quarter (23%) of electors with mixed ethnicity are not yet registered.
