As you may know, the Elections Bill will undergo a second reading in the House of Commons on 7th September.
This undemocratic bill will place restrictions on campaigning and cross-party cooperation, stifling the voice of civil society through a series of draconian measures.
From mandating voter ID, to placing restrictions on electoral pacts, to allowing Ministers to curtail campaigning, the Elections Bill constitutes an insidious power grab and must be stopped.
You can help us to do this by ensuring it is at the top of your MP’s agenda. Many MPs from across the political spectrum are concerned by the contents of this Bill; with your help, we can show them how much it matters to people that the Bill is not allowed to pass unchallenged.
