U.K. Residents, Sign This Pledge To Get Out The Vote For Labour On June 8

June 02, 2017

The British election is on Thursday June 8, and it's safe to say that it's closer than anyone thought it would be when Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap election on April 18. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has erased a double digit poll deficit, created in part by years of negative media coverage and party establishment power jockeying. For the first time in decades, the U.K. has a chance to be led by a truly left-wing government.

It is true that every poll has currently has Labour at a deficit to May's Conservatives, though it's tightening every day. Turnout is crucial for Labour, but the party has all the momentum. That's why, if you're a U.K. resident and able to take the day off on June 8, you should sign this pledge to help Labour get out the vote. You can sign up for a full day of canvassing in your area, or if you can't spend the entire day, pledge for a shift in the morning, afternoon, or evening.

Local, grassroots organizing brought us this unprecedented election comeback, and it's the best way to finish it strong.
