Yes! Message taken to the gates of Stormont

In just 24 hours polls will have closed. But Yesterday earlier this week the Yes! ad van travelled across the Irish Sea to join the team here in Belfast and was taken to the very gates that lead up to Parliament Buildings. It also went to the offices of Dawn Purvis, Naomi Long and Chris Lyttle.

If you want fair votes to elect you MP to Westminster. If you want your voice to be heard and your vote to count then say yes tomorrow.

Polls open in 9 hours at 7am and close at 10am.

Don’t forget to vote here in Northern Ireland you need to take along your valid ID. So take along one of the following:

  •  A UK, Irish or EEA driving licence (photographic part)
  • A UK, Irish or EU passport
  • An electoral identity card
  • A Translink Senior SmartPass
  • A Translink 60+ SmartPass
  • A Translink War Disabled SmartPass
  • A Translink Blind Person’s SmartPass

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in the ballot – and second preference drawn

Michael from Fairer Votes Belfast putting out the campaign leaflets.

A successful evening was had at the first Fairer Votes Belfast event at the North Down and Strangford Alliance Associations’ Table Quiz at the CIYMS Clubhouse in East Belfast. We’ve signed up some volunteers. Although the Fairer Votes Belfast team didn’t come first in the quiz, we didn’t come last either.

Stephen, the campaign manager, did have ballot tickets 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, and on the second draw out came number 1. So that seems like a good result for our team.

Every table had a few leaflets for our campaign and between two round Stephen addressed the assembled throng. We even had debate with the Green Party in Northern Ireland‘s MLA, Brian Wilson, who was there with his wife Cllr Anne Wilson.

Alliance MLAs Stephen Farry (North Down) and Kieran McCarthy (Strangford) signed up for their support.

We look forward to working with all our supporters in Alliance in the coming months as we work to get Northern Ireland to say

Yes to Fairer Votes on May 5th.
