General Election, 12 December
Parliament has supported Boris Johnson’s bill to hold a General Election on the 12th December 2019. This election is an opportunity to choose a government that will respect the growing majority in providing a Peoples Vote with the option to remain.
In order to take part in this election, it is vital that you are registered to vote, you can do so online at: gov.uk/register-to-vote
If you are a student you are eligible to register at both your student house and home address, you can vote in local elections at both locations and decide on the day which to vote in for a general election.
If for whatever reason you won’t be able to get to a polling station on the 12th or would find it easier to vote by post you can register to do so at: gov.uk/government/publications/apply-for-a-postal-vote
If you would like to check to see if you’re already registered please go to: gov.uk/get-on-electoral-register

What is Cheltenham Borough Council doing about Brexit?
We asked them what plans they have for Brexit – Deal or No Deal
A few weeks ago, we submitted a Freedom of Information request to Cheltenham Borough Council, asking them to share with us their plans for Brexit and in particular for a No Deal Brexit. This was part of a coordinated initiative undertaken with the five other members of the Gloucestershire Forum for Europe to submit such requests to all public bodies in the county. Read more here.
