We need lots of helpers on election day, 4 May 2017. Please take the day off work and come and help. We have 55 candidates standing for Oxfordshire County Council. We need to get a bigger Green group elected onto the council to effectively fight for local democracy and against cuts in services that affect the vulnerable.
We need people to:
- Telephone or 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 where people are voting green) or check the count on Friday morning.
- We also need help in the days before polling day, preparing and delivering eve of poll leaflets.
Please come to Oxford to help.
If you cannot make it to Oxford, we need help in Deddington and Abingdon. Or telephone for us.
