Voting means do you know who gets the most votes in the UK, who is in power now, how do you vote.

This term we are going to check our progress slightly differently! You are going to be learning about how to live in the culture outside of school!

It s our party and we ll cry if we want to

It’s Our Party And We’ll Cry If We Want To

The two big parties in British Politics are clearly Labourand the Conservatives. It has been this way for the past 100 years and will probably continue to do so. Between them they polled 65.1% (19,336,141 votes) in the 2010 General Election.

If You then add the 3rd Party the Liberal Democrats then the figure goes up to 88.1% (26,172,965 votes). What this essentially means is that the 3 biggest parties have a monopoly of support amongst the UK Public. If any party is to have any real chance of breaking this monopoly then they must have wealthy backers, mass support and a highly developed local and national structure. Of all the major fringe parties none of them fit this bill!

How do i make sure i can vote

Mini Plenary-

What are these documents? Questions too!

How do I make sure I can vote?

  • Make sure your name is on the Electoral Register for your area. This is a list of everyone who can vote.

  • You can contact your local council to make sure you are on this list.

  • The council will send you a card just before an election. This is called a polling card.

  • The card tells you where and when to vote.

Collect in votes too!
