Voter ID Pilots

Over 40 leading charities and academics, including NUS UK, Operation Black Vote and Stonewall, have called on the government to urgently reconsider the decision to run pilot mandatory voter ID at the local elections in May. Agreements have been made to mandate the Campaigns and Democracy Officer to write to Chloe Smith MP, and other relevant people or bodies, urging reconsideration on the voter ID pilots. The SU will work with NUS in campaigns against the introduction of restrictive voting laws and movements towards more representative voting systems. There are plans to support campaigns that attempt to encourage voting from groups across society, and campaigns that work to explore and explain the political system.
