This is a great opportunity to increase awareness of the party and our membership.

Make sure you are registered to vote and get behind your local candidate. Remember this is the first time 16 year old’s will be eligible to vote. Make it count. This government agrees that you are mature enough to make decisions regarding the destiny of a nation, and yet makes it an offense to serve you alchohol at your own wedding.

If you don’t have a candidate in your electoral ward, do your best to help in campaigning for your nearest candidate. There is work to be done. Leafleting, attending hustings and lending support. If you have are a driver and have a car, maybe you can make yourself available to other activists who need transport.

Let’s make the optimum use of this historic moment.

    You have a candidate standing in my Ward at the up coming council election, Daniel Fraser, (Almond Ward, City of Edinburgh). Can you send me his email address as I would like to ask his views on a local issue.


  • Barbara says

    It would be helpful to include contact information (not necessarily email address, but links to facebook or twitter if they are on there for example would be good) for your candidates so that people can easily get in touch with them to ask questions and get to know them a bit before deciding whether to vote for them.
