Dear John,

Voter ID is about limiting our freedom, not protecting our democracy

That’s why we are relaunching our successful ‘letters to the editor’ campaign to protest this Government’s assault on our democracy.

The Government is in the midst of an unprecedented assault on our democracy, from the draconian Policing Bill to defanging Judicial Review and voter ID. It’s time to make some noise about it.

Millions of people read local newspapers, and the letters section is often the most read after the front page. It’s a great way to inform and engage your community on issues which matter to you, and it only takes a few minutes.

Copy and paste the template letter at the bottom of this email, and send it on to your local paper.

The email address you need should be on their website. 

Once you’ve sent the letter to your local newspaper, let us know by completing our short survey. Thank you.

While contacting your MP online withHey-MPis brilliant, many MPs stillrelyon their local paper to get a sense of theirconstituents’ views.And many older people still rely onlocal print mediato get their information.

Please feel free to copy and paste our template, which you will find at the bottom of this email, or alter it as you see fit!

Best wishes,

Director of Operations, Best for Britain

To the editor,

Requiring ID at polling stations is not about protecting our democracy, it’s about limiting our democratic freedom. Best for Britain has pointed to data which shows, as of 2015, 3.5 million citizens, or 7.5 per cent of the electorate, did not have access to any photo ID meaning that while the move may stop a dozen complaints of fraud, it could also disenfranchise or disincentivise millions. 

The Government also plans to dismantle the Electoral Commission watchdog and defang Judicial Review, which overturned the Prime Minister’s unlawful prorogation of Parliament in 2019. Mayoral elections in England will be returned to First Past the Post – the only countries in Europe which still use this antiquated system for national legislatures are the UK and Belarus.

Taken together, these measures are a coordinated and insidious attack on the fabric of our democracy. They clearly show that the Government wants to avoid accountability, in parliament, in court and at the ballot box, and it is vital that progressive parties work together to stop them.

It’s about time we made our voting system fair so that election results actually reflect the will of the people, every vote is counted and trust is restored in our political system.Until we do, progressive parties must unite to resist this unchecked power grab from those at the top.

Yours faithfully,

[Your name]
