Don’t forget to vote on Thursday

referendum-ballot-boxThe EU Referendum is being held this Thursday 23rd June. A vote to Remain a member of the EU (the first option on the ballot paper) is a vote for keeping Manchester a strong European city. Four things to remember:

  • You don’t need your polling card to vote – just go to your polling station and give them your name and address
  • Polls are open from 7am to 10pm – if you’re going to be busy late on, why not vote first thing?
  • If you’ve got a postal vote, but haven’t sent it back yet, you can take it to any polling station before 10pm
  • If you don’t know where your polling station is or you need a lift to vote, call the Whalley Range Labour team on 0161 860 5523

Vote ‘Remain’ on Thursday 23rd June

Councillors vote remainAngeliki Stogia, Mary Watson and Aftab Razaq (our three Whalley Range Labour councillors seen here in Manley Park) urge all local residents to vote to ‘Remain a member of the European Union‘ (the first option on the ballot paper) in the Referendum vote on Thursday 23rd June. “The EU is not perfect, we all know that” say the councillors, “But the benefits of membership far outweigh the costs, especially for our own city of Manchester. European funding has helped us to build Europe’s biggest tram network, has provided millions in investment for local universities and businesses to fund research and innovation, delivered new skills and training to thousands of Manchester residents to help them get into work, and helped protect or create many more jobs. We are all voting to ‘Remain’, and we hope that you are too”.
