  • rsvped for Election Day 2018-02-19 16:26:14 +0000

    Help get out more Green votes on election day, 3 May 2018

    We need lots of helpers on election day, 3 May 2018. Please take the day off work and come and help. We have candidates standing for Oxford City, Cherwell and West Oxfordshire Councils. We need to get a bigger Green group elected onto Oxford council to fight for local people and local democracy.

    We need people to:

    • Telephone and visit green voters to remind them to get to their polling station (in 2013 we lost a seat by 27 votes when our voters stayed at home)
    • Help voters get to the polls (from giving lifts to baby sitting)
    • Sit outside polling stations smiling at voters and writing down voter numbers (telling)
    • Walk or cycle around town, with Green Party banners, handing out pledge cards (so everyone is reminded that there is an election where they can vote Green)
    • Help at our committee rooms (from making tea and coffee to entering data into computers)
    • In the evening, as the ballots are opened, tally the votes (so we know exactly where people are voting green).
    • We also need help in the days before polling day, preparing and delivering eve of poll leaflets.

    Please come to Oxford to help.

    When you RSVP below, you will then be sent to a page to indicate your preferences in how you can help. Please complete that page. We will get back to you with specific details about when and where you will be helping.

    Printing leaflets

    How can I help print and fold the leaflets we deliver to voters in Oxfordshire? How can I get training in operating our printer?

    A:

    We printed and delivered 10,000 leaflets for the Witney by-election on our own Riso printer in October. Between now and 8 June we will need to print thousands of leaflets and posters for our General Election campaigns in Oxfordshire.

    To do that, we need volunteers. Thanks to your help, we can reach twice as many households for the same cost. We can print leaflets at 2 p each - as long as we have volunteers trained to run a machine that prints 100 pages/minute.

    The printing machine is in the shed of a generous Green Party member, behind 13 Coniston Avenue, Oxford OX3 0AN.

    Sign up for a printing shift

    Leave a comment if you need training. An experienced printer operator will show you how to run our printer and folding machine.

    Elections in Oxfordshire

    The 2017 General Election

    We are proud to support our candidates in five Oxfordshire constituencies for the General Election on Thursday 8th June 2017:

    In Oxford West and Abingdon, Cheryl Briggs is standing aside: we are pushing a progressive alliance here and recommend that Green voters in this constituency consider giving Layla Moran of the Liberal Democrats their vote to try and prevent a Conservative victory in this key marginal seat.

    Read our leaflet to find out why the Greens stood aside in Oxford West and Abingdon.

    Layla has made assurances of support to promote several policy areas important to Greens. These included opposition to further privatisation of public services and the NHS, opposition to fracking, support for LGBTIQA+ rights, and support for voting reform (proportional representation).

    • Ask for regular donations so we can build the party and extend our campaigns.

    Will you vote for Larry?

    The green party has pledged to make britain fairer and less divided. We can do better.

    Witney needs

    • a rail line to end the A40 gridlock that cripples our economic and social life
    • the right housing in the right place: affordable homes that don’t harm the environment
    • an end to NHS cuts and hospital closures
    • an end to the pointless cruelty of austerity. We should borrow cheaply to invest in schools, children’s centres, day centres, libraries, andmaintain roads and pavements
    • a decent rural bus service
    • decent prospects for our young people
    • a comfortable retirement for our old people

    Larry Sanders' priorities

    • reduce unemployment and underemployment
    • reverse privatisation of the NHS and fund it properly
    • make social care free at the point of need
    • introduce proportional representation so that all votes count
    • ensure the richest individuals and corporations pay their full taxes
    • introduce a minimum wage of £10 an hour
    • end tuition fees
    • restore maintenance grants for students and apprentices
    • introducing rent controls to ensure better security for tenants
    • invest in renewables and building insulation to fight climate change for the sake of our children and grandchildren

    How can we afford this?

    The Bank of England has created hundreds of billions of pounds in the last eight years for the banks. We should invest at
    least some of this in essential infrastructure and services to create real wealth. This way, we could have a world class quality of life for all citizens.

    In Oxfordshire, the Green Party councillors produced an alternative budget that would have protected £7 million investment in the people of Oxfordshire, including rural bus services, all the childrens centres and adult social care, at a cost of 74 p/week increase in council tax. All the Conservative, Labour and Liberal Democrat county councillors voted against the Green budget and for the cuts.

    The Greens are the alternative

    The Elections Committee doesn’t make the final decisions. But it is tasked with the hard work to evaluate the information collected on each division and make recommendations. Members and supporters can help us find out more about the divisions, from their local knowledge and surveys.

    In previous years we have blithely gone up against a really strong Labour or Lib. Dem. campaign for a popular candidate and lost. We need to be smarter than them.
