Stand up for democracy – oppose the Elections Bill

The Elections Bill is said by the government to be designed to strengthen the integrity of the electoral process. But the reality is that it will make it more difficult for voters to take part in elections.

By requiring voters to produce ID at the polling station, the Bill will disenfranchise around two million potential voters who do not have access to a recognised photo ID. This is according to the government's own figures.

Restrictive ID requirements overwhelmingly disadvantage working class, younger, older, disabled and BAEM citizens.

This in turn attacks trade unions and their members and is why Unite believes that the Boris Johnson is using the Bill to rig the electoral system.

We believe that society should encourage political engagement by working people, not treat them as a malevolent force. Which is why we're asking Unite members to act now and write to your MPs to demand they oppose this Bill.
