How do I register to vote in Esher and Walton in General Election 2019?

So many people are NOT registered to vote in Esher & Walton-on-Thames. Young people, students and private renters are MOST likely NOT to be registered. You may want to vote on polling day, but it will be too late! 

So 1 in 6 people are not registered. Warning – you must register by 26th November. But don’t leave too late. The website gets very busy nearer deadline time.

Politics.co.uk states:

Younger people and renters are missing from the register in greater proportions than older voters and owner-households. If you’ve just moved flat and are juggling two or three jobs, registering to vote usually isn’t number one on your priorities list.

Private renters are also the least likely to have accurate and up to date entry on the register. Just 58% are correctly registered, compared with 91% of homeowners.

Registration levels are also low amongst young people aged 18-34, with only 71% correctly registered, compared to 94% of people aged 65 and over. Make no mistake: this is a generation gap that threatens political equality in the UK.

Dominic Raab is very HAPPY with these figures.

His voter-base is middle-aged and more male than female. In general, the older you are the more likely to vote pro-Brexit as well.

Monica Harding of the Lib Dems is the ONLY candidate who can stop Raab. But it will be very close!

She needs your help if she is going to #StopRaab and #StopBrexit 

So how do you register to vote?

Warning – the deadline is 26th November to Register to Vote in Esher & Walton. 

Students who wish to Remain in the EU and stop Brexit will be wise to take a look at where your vote will be most effective. 

If you are student, but mum or dad live in Esher and Walton, your vote COULD be the one that defeats Dominic Raab! Awesome!

You can only vote once, obviously. But your vote may be more use in Esher & Walton than at your university town.

Consider where you will vote and then go to:

Gov.uk – Register to vote
