Description

Your country needs YOU!

With less than two weeks until polling day, we are working hard to alter the result and limit a Tory landslide.


The Conservative manifesto illustrates Theresa May’s desire to get a whopping majority that will catalyse an extreme Brexit, lessening the money available for our NHS, our social care, our schools and, despite the promises, even our aid budget, workers’ rights, environmental and consumer protection.


But it doesn’t have to be a foregone conclusion – what we do in the next two weeks CAN have an impact.


We have built a Tactical Vote Dashboard to advise people how to vote in 573 seats across the UK. We want it to unite people power behind the candidate most likely to beat the (usually) Conservative candidate in that constituency. If we all put our energy and our votes behind the same candidate, we can reduce the Conservative landslide and give ourselves a fighting chance of getting a Parliament that will challenge, not just rubber stamp, the government's agenda.


We need your help on distribution of the tool to people across the U.K.

We'll brainstorm ideas and then spend the second half of the time starting to implement them.

What we want to achieve:

1/. Focus on how partners can push out the Tool to maximize impact

2/. Identify 10 'influencers' each to help it spread on social

3/. Identify 3 tangible and quickly implementable ideas for how to get it out far and wide. Come with ideas and your device!
