Election day

It is Election day folks. We cannot stress enough how important it is to vote. Across the world people have died fighting for the right to vote and to be part of a democracy. To sit in the confines of your home with the destructive attitude of “politicians do nothing for me” is to ignore the very sacrifices they made for us.

We also must stress how important it is to vote all the way down the ballot paper. The MOST important thing to remember is to transfer to ALL Unionist candidates from number 1 down. Unity is strength! Under our almost unique voting system, the Single Transferable Vote (STV), it pays to vote all the way down to maximise the effectiveness of one’s ballot for and against individual candidates. Do not use an “X” or tick, this will spoil your vote. Use numbers.

By doing so, you are making your voice heard and registering your opinion on how you think your local council should operate. Local councils are responsible for a significant proportion of our public services. Whether your concerns relate to employment and housing or potholes and fly tipping, their budgets are handed to them from Westminster but it’s up to them how they are spent.

Choose wisley, choose Unionist!
