Trades Council organises public meeting at Rosmini Centre to help those confused about how to vote in election

With pundits describing the forthcoming general election as the lottery election I am sure there are many voters like me who are confused as to how to vote this year.

To help local voters come to understand what could possibly turn out to be the most idiosyncratic election in UK history, the Wisbech, March & District Trades Council has invited one of this country’s recognised experts on democracy, Dr Henry Tam from Cambridge University, to lead a talk at the Rosmini Centre, Wisbech, tomorrow.

Dr Tam is the director of the Forum for Youth Participation and Democracy at the Faculty of Education and the ‘Question the Powerful’ political education project.

Dr Tam has also advised councils and central government on improving participation in democracy.

Alongside Dr Tam will be Unite the Union education director Jim Mowatt.

The public meeting begins at 1pm and the Rosmini café and bar will be open throughout the afternoon.

We hope people from all parties and from none, and those who may not vote at all, will come and hear from unbiased professionals and join in the discussion.
