Soldiers' Election Fears

#1
From The Scum:

EIGHTY per cent of squaddies may lose their vote in the Election, it was feared last night.

New rules mean everyone has to register each year to take part.

But troops and other servicemen, often fighting for democracy overseas, were unaware of the change.

Just 20 per cent have registered so far.

They must do so by March 11 — six working days — or they will be unable to take part in the expected May 5 poll.
Maybe the Sun is trying to do some good after the flack that we have given it recently.

Some young soldiers make take notice after it's been in 'our paper' rather than an official form

About time they did something positive for the armed forces.

Bit late though! :? :roll:

Is there a reason that all members of the Armed Forces can not simply be registered as a matter of course? It should be automatic with being a serving member. Instead it is made a difficulty.

Are you surprised? Most soldiers do not traditionally vote Labour, so there is no mileage for the govt in making it easy.
