Voter registration

Socialist ideas are energising young people

Cardiff Socialist Party members

A third of a million voters have 'disappeared' from the electoral register in Wales, thanks to the shameless attempt by Tory and Liberal politicians to disenfranchise the working class, and young people in particular.

The Con-Dem government of Cameron and Clegg made it harder for voters to register in 2014 when they brought in individual electoral registration. In the following three years, the number of under-25s registered to vote fell by 25%!

But the manoeuvres of establishment politicians won't prevent the youth from finding an alternative to the sick capitalist system these politicians support. After the snap general election was called, 100,000 young people registered to vote - in just three days!

Cardiff Socialist Party, Cardiff University Socialist Students and Cardiff and Vale College Socialist Students have been playing their part, participating in a voter registration push.

Stalls outside of both campuses clearly arguing for Corbyn's programme and the policies elucidated in his manifesto - such as a 10 an hour minimum wage, the building of social housing and the abolition of tuition fees - have done a great job of engaging students and young workers.

Rigged

Scores of young voters have been registered through this initiative alone, with many more indicating support for socialist policies to transform a rigged economy and unfair society into an economy and society that works for the benefit of all and not just a wealthy elite.

Socialist ideas are energising young voters. On 8 June there is an opportunity to defeat May's government of corruption and austerity and begin the process of transforming society.

A joint meeting (details below) is being held by Socialist Students and young workers in the city to bring together those who want to fight for Corbyn's programme and to make June the end of May!

We know that policies like those backed by Corbyn won't be made into a reality unless we mobilise on the streets and in our communities to fight for them.

Get involved with the process of finding and registering Corbyn supporters between now and the election - the deadline is 22 May - through your local Socialist Party or Socialist Students branch.

Corbyn can win with socialist policies. Join the fight for socialism, equality and justice!

  • Cardiff Socialist Students meeting - Friday 19 May, 7.30pm, Cardiff Uni Students' Union, Park Place, CF10 3QN
