South Cambs candidates say register to vote by May 22

Voter_registration.JPGThe main candidates in the South Cambridgeshire General Election seat have put aside their differences to urge local residents to make sure they are registered to vote.

The election will be held on 8th June but the deadline to register to vote is 22nd May.

You can register to vote online or in person and it only takes a few minutes at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

Dan Greef, Labour candidate, said: "This is such an important election and I hope we'll have a real robust debate in South Cambs on the issues that affect people. But if you aren't registered to vote then you can't have your say on 8th June. 

"While all the candidates may have different political opinions one of the things we all agree on is that it is vital for a healthy democracy that as many people get their voice heard as possible."

Liberal Democrat candidate Susan van de Ven said: "More than any other election in my lifetime, this one will affect the future of young people in this country, determining what opportunities they can expect. It is our job, as politicians, to address the issues.  We will do that best if a full electorate holds us to account."

Heidi Allen, Conservative candidate said: "This is such an important election as we are living through a very challenging period of political history. Democracy has never been more alive than it is right now, so please make sure you register to vote by 22 May so you can have your say."

Simon Saggers, Green candidate, said: "l would encourage everyone to register to vote and stand up against our winner-takes-all voting system, which sadly makes it feel like voting in South Cambs doesn’t make much of a difference.”
