Last chance to vote for Keir Starmer as our Party Leader & Angela Rayner as our Deputy Leader

On this Thursday 2 April 2020 at 12 noon it will finally be over.

So now is your last chance to vote in the Labour Party Leadership elections.

Obviously there are now far more important matters to deal with than internal party elections but it is now even more vital than ever that we have competent and united Official Opposition leadership team holding the Tories to account.

I have voted for Keir as our leader and Angela as our deputy leader. I doubt that anything I say now will change anyone minds on the wisdom of that choice.
Most people vote in these elections during the first few days but there are many labour Party members and affiliates eligible to vote who have not yet got around to it.

So please vote (regardless of who you support since it is vital for our democratic process that as many participate as possible).

If the Party or your affiliate has an email address check your inbox and spam folder for a communication from labourelections@cesvotes.com

Please check and vote online. It only takes a few minutes.

If they did not have an email address you should have been sent you a paper ballot form. Which could be in a drawer at your home somewhere unopened. Fill it out and send back tomorrow morning (with a 1st class stamp and hopefully it will arrive in time).

Keir and Angela are the clear favourites but I was brought up in a hard trade union political school where we were taught that all elections are won or lost by a single vote. So don't take anything for granted, vote for Keir and Angela (and for Carol Sewell for the BAME seat if eligible).

The result is announced on Saturday 4 April.
