We Are Europe – You need to apply to postal vote by THIS FRIDAY! #POSTIT


You need to apply to postal vote by THIS FRIDAY!

Did you know the recommended deadline to mail your postal vote application is this Friday 3rd June?

Nor does anyone else.
Do it now at j.mp/PostItEU

Although the postal voting deadline is technically 5pm on June 8th, we’re deeply concerned that this date is misleading. To apply for a postal vote you need to register online; find the postal form; print it; sign it; mail it – and then wait for the postie to deliver it to your council.

That takes longer than just doing it online, which is what most people expect. For voters in England, Scotland and Wales* the official guidance is to mail your postal vote application by this Friday June 3rd! 

Luckily for you, today we’ve launched our #POSTIT  campaign and video, so you can let all your friends and family know THIS WEEK. Share our video below on Facebook and YouTube – tell everyone why you’re voting by post, or why others should.

Why postal vote?

This referendum is going to be close. Every single vote matters and everyone deserves to have a say. Yet hundreds of thousands of voters, mainly young people, will not be at their registered address on June 23rd – whether they’re in Glastonbury, at the Euros, at home with family or holidaying it up in Spain. For these people, to #POSTIT may be the best option. j.mp/PostItEU

Still not convinced?

That’s fine, we’ve always got more data. In last week’s Austrian election Green candidate Alex Van der Bellen defeated far-right Eurosceptic Norbert Hofer by just 0.6% of the vote to become President. Before the 700,000 postal votes were counted … he was behind by 3.8%. (tweet this | share this on Facebook)

So #POSTIT. It can definitely make a difference. Let’s avoid waking up on June 24th outside of the EU by complete accident – share this far and wide today! And of course, if you want to register to #POSTIT yourself, there’s a big red postbox to click below.

*This applies to England, Scotland and Wales. If you’re in Northern Ireland, your application actually needs to be received by this Friday at 5pm – so you probably need to post your form by first class by the end of today. (Share this with your mates!)
*If you’re overseas, the forms may not reach you in time, so the recommendation now is to apply by proxy. (Share this with your mates!)
