give some time to make a call to give yourself a stronger voice

Fair Votes Now

Today the Northern Ireland campaign team was attending the Ulster Unionist Conference in the Ramada Hotel in Belfast, meeting MLAs, councillors and members.

In other parts of the United Kingdom, the Yes to Fairer Votes campaign was launching its first wave of 50 phonebanks across the country.

The phonebanking operation constitutes the most ambitious direct voter contact programme in British political history and we are aiming to speak to more voters than all the political parties did combined at the general election.

This grassroots led strategy is reliant upon normal people volunteering an hour or two a month of their time to call over voters and persuade them to vote yes. So far the campaign has had over 140,000 people sign up to help and they expect this to increase dramatically as the campaign gathers pace.

If you are able to give up any of your time to help out, click here to sign up and the regional organiser in your area will be in touch to arrange a time that suits you. Don’t worry if you don’t live near a major town or city, as they also plan to launch their virtual phonebank in mid-December, so you will soon be able to help out from the comfort of your own home.
