Election

General Election on 8 June 2017

Ipswich has a Conservative MP at the moment, but it's a two-way marginal seat. Over the last 100 years it has changed hands between the Labour and Conservative parties no less than eight times. A swing of just 3.8% will be enough to see a new Labour MP elected this year.

Here are four simple things you can do which could make the difference between Ipswich returning a Labour or Conservative MP on 8 June:

  1. Make sure you are registered to vote. You can register online now: www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
  2. Make sure you use your vote! - Perhaps a postal vote would make this easier?: https://www.yourvotematters.co.uk/how-do-i-vote/voting-by-post
  3. Display a Labour poster or garden board at the election.
  4. Help us get Labour's message to Ipswich residents by volunteering for leaflet deliveries or talking to voters.

It’s the same here on Bolton Lane! Had LD Inga Lockington around during local elections but no other candidates at all, and yet there are loads of Labour boards out in front gardens.

I live in Constable road Ipswich.I work from home so have had many calls from Lib Dem and Covservative representatives. I have never had one from a Labour representative which saddens me. If you walk along our road and Manor Road you can see many Labour posters, we are not a Conservative neighbourhood. I believe many of my neighbours are open to being convinced to vote labour. Please pay us a visit. We need the win Ipswich back from the Tories.
