You Can Make the Difference: Vote on 6th May

This Thursday, 6th May is Polling Day. Polling stations will open 7am and close at 10pm, so there is plenty of time for you to vote.

The location of your nearest polling station will be listed on the front of your polling card. If you can’t find your card, your local council will be able to tell you where your nearest station is. You do not need your polling card to vote.

If you have a postal vote but have not yet returned it, you can do so until 10pm on Thursday to any polling station in your constituency.

If this is the first time you’ve voted, the Electoral Commission has a guide which walks you through the process which you can see at

Prior to polling day, Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg has made a personal guarantee to use all support for the Liberal Democrats to deliver fairness for Britain. Nick said:

“We need a fairer tax system. I will use your votes to cut taxes for those at the bottom and in the middle and close the loopholes for those at the top.

“We need to support our children. I will use your votes to ensure extra funding for schools, to cut class sizes and give all children a fair chance.

“We need to clean up politics. I will use your votes to reform Parliament, to deliver a fairer voting system, protect your freedoms and give you the right to sack corrupt MPs.

“We need a new economy. I will use your vote to split up the banks, get them lending again, invest in green infrastructure and so create jobs.

“This election campaign has shown us that millions of people want us to do something different this time. Politicians should work together to solve the nation’s biggest problems.

“That is why, whatever the outcome on Thursday, I believe we should be prepared to work together to fix the terrible state of our public finances and ensure economic stability.

“These are the key steps to a new, fairer Britain. Give me the power of your vote and we can make it happen. Together, we can make the difference.”
