|Voting is Quick and Easy|
This is a simple guide to the upcoming European Elections and how to vote. It has been written because many of our people do not vote or perhaps have never voted.
The next set of elections are the European elections. They take place on Thursday 22nd May. Everyone in Britain can vote providing you are registered to vote. For the European elections, Britain is split into Regions. If you live in Shropshire you will be voting in the West Midlands Region.
The British National Party is putting up a large number of candidates for the role of MEP which stands for 'Member of European Parliament'. In the West Midlands we hope to get at least one candidate elected.
Back in 2009 two BNP candidates became MEPs - one in the North West and one in Yorkshire. Across Britain, almost one million people voted BNP in 2009. If enough of us vote, we can replicate that success in the West Midlands.
The European elections are important for the BNP. A full colour leaflet will be delivered to every house in the West Midlands by Royal Mail and we have two Party Political Broadcasts which will be shown on the television closer to election day.
In the European Parliament (based in Brussels and Strasbourg) our MEPs can talk to other European nationalists and gain valuable political experience while standing up for our people in Britain. Success brings publicity and more credibility for the BNP.
How to Vote
Voting is easy. A week or two before polling day - also known as election day - everyone who is registered to vote receives a Polling Card through the post. Printed on this card is the location of your Polling Station - usually a village hall, school or other community building.
Simply walk into the Polling Station, tell the person at the desk your name and they will give you a Ballot Paper which has a list of candidates and their political party on it. Take this Ballot Paper and mark a 'X' next to the candidate or political party you want to win, then fold the Ballot Paper and put it into the Ballot Box, which looks like the one shown in the picture above.
Remember, voting is secret! No one will know how you have voted. No one can find out unless you tell them. The only reason you are asked your name is so the person in charge can ensure no one else uses your vote. They cross your name off their list - all they know is that you voted. They can not tell who you voted for.
How to Register to Vote
If you are not registered to vote, it is very easy to do so.
