Get out the Vote for #Yes2Brummayor
GET INVOLVED! The Yes Campaign needs your help on Thursday and Friday!
On Thursday 3 May Birmingham will hold a historic vote on whether to have an elected Mayor. We are campaigning for a Yes vote from the people of Birmingham to make this change for the better – we need your help!
We need volunteers to help get the vote out for a YES.
We need people on the streets on Thursday and outside local polling stations. You don’t need to be anything but a supporter who wants to make a difference. We need people to hand out our campaign leaflets and speak to voters – we’ll even give you a YES t-shirt if you want!
Importantly we also need volunteers to help with the counts. There are 2 crucial times we need help with:
Thursday 10pm – midnight
Volunteers to ensure the mayoral vote boxes are correctly sealed and separated from the council vote boxes at the local constituency centres.
We need a volunteer for each of the following centres:
Bartley Green, Edgbaston, Erdington, Tyseley, Bordesley Green, Washwood Heath, Northfield, Handsworth, Perry Barr, Sheldon.
Friday 2pm – 6pm
We need volunteers to be present at the actual counting of the votes at the ICC in the City Centre.
For both of these you will be at the heart of the action and playing a key role in local democracy ensuring that it is fair and properly carried out.
Remember, at the very least we need everyone using twitter and facebook to spread the word for a YES vote next Thursday. Also retweet other supporters or write a blogpost about why you are going to vote YES for an elected mayor. Change your facebook picture to a Yes 2 Brum Mayor button or add a Twibbon to your twitter avatar.
