Enrol to vote

The Electoral Enrolment Centre has just begun its pre-election enrolment drive, aimed at making sure everyone can vote later this year. So, you should be getting one of those envelopes with that strange orange guy on them. If you haven't, or you suspect you might not (if for example you've never enrolled, or you've moved and forgotten to update your details), you can check and confirm your enrolment (and get sent a form if its incorrect) online here.

As for why you should enrol, democracy is a participatory sport, and you have to be in to win. Your vote is a weapon, so if you want your opinions to be taken into account, use it.
