New Europeans has written to David Lidington, Minister of the Cabinet Office to call for action to be taken to ensure that all EU27 citizens are able to vote at the European elections on 23 May.
We are calling on the government to do the following:
1) Make UC1 forms available for EU citizens to sign at all polling stations on 23 May.
2) Send polling cards to all EU citizens on the register not just those who have already signed a UC1 form.
The downloadable UC1 form is the declaration that EUcitizens need to sign to confirm that they will not be voting in EU elections in another EU member state.
Once signed, the UCI form can be scanned and returned to local councils by email (deadlne as things stand is 7 May).
Please write to your MP with a copy of our letter to David Lidington to demand the Government take the actions we are calling for.
