@channel Please can you share this on all your social media channels? It’s important due to the deadline for proxy voting. We have a team literally doing proper, hands-on work matching up overseas voters to proxy voters. Lots of due dilligence is done on them and it takes a lot of work. But we have an army of volunteers helping! It’s amazing!

BREAKING! New from @TechForUK:

Just 2,227 votes decided the outcome of the last general election. Yes, really!

This new site lets you volunteer to help campaigners win the closest seats, and beat Johnson and the Conservatives!

#TacticalVolunteer
NEW LAUNCH!

SwapMyVote was a powerful tool in 2017 and helped to deny the Tories a majority.

Now it’s back for for the General Election!
https://www.swapmyvote.uk

Here’s how it works:

Alice lives in Town X. She’d like to vote for the Labour Party, but they can’t win where she lives. If she wants a progressive MP to represent her, she needs to vote Lib Dem, because they CAN win. It’s not her ideal choice.

Meanwhile, across the country, Bob lives in Town Y. He’s a lifelong Lib Dem voter, but they don’t stand a chance in his town. BUT - The Labour Party could potentially win if all progressive voters voted for them. He decides his only option is to vote Labour.

Enter Swap My Vote!

Both Alice and Bob sign up on the site and get matched together. They agree to team up and #VoteTactically together. Each one will vote in their own constituency, for the other’s preferred party.

The big thing that changes? It helps create the coordination that we’d like to see from party leaders, but, instead, at the grassroots.

Votes are thus used much more effectively, so we can keep the Tories from power and enacting Brexit. It makes tactical voting much easier.

So please share this with friends and family - on Twitter, Facebook and also via WhatsApp

Make your vote count this December 12th!

Swap yours with someone in a constituency where both could count for more!

You get to vote for who you really want, and help someone else to do the same.

OK TEAM HERE WE GO.

We need you to share his site across every social site / group you know. Forget non-campaigning rules. You think the other side cares? This our future at stake. So here it is:

“Remain must become a liberal guerilla campaign. “ https://www.politics.co.uk/blogs/2019/12/13/the-future-of-british-europeanism

Let’s use Telegram for this.

Why do we need to tell the other side what we are doing on Twitter all the time!?

It’s time to go underground.
We’re taking a break from our festive break to bring you a petiton worth signing, if only to register your protest at a prominent Brexiter:
