Make history tomorrow

High opinion poll ratings are enjoyable to see.

Big turnouts at meetings can give you a real buzz.

New offers of help can warm the heart.

But what really matters is voters and seats. You certainly don’t have to hold elected office to make a difference in your community, but the possibilities that come with winning elections provide so many routes to change your local community and our country.

For all the fun of the last four weeks, it’s the election results that roll out tomorrow night and Friday morning which will really shape the future of our government and our political system.

They’ll determine whether after the worst political scandal and deepest recession since the early twentieth century the political and economic systems just manage to hunker down for a bit longer before returning to their old ways. Or whether we get the change the depth of those crises demands.

It’s a once in a generation opportunity to change Britain for good.

Seats, even at a general election, are often won or lost by a handful of votes.

It’s not just your vote tomorrow that could make the difference; it’s the help you can give reminding people to vote and persuading last minute waverers.

So get your comfy shoes on, have a supply of blister plasters at the ready and have fun whilst making history tomorrow.
