Can I vote in the Labour leadership campaign?

The rules have been changing rapidly, complete this short survey to find out whether you're eligible to vote and find out how to do it

July 18, 2016 · 1 min read

You may already have a vote for the Labour leadership, or you may be able to become a supporter and get one – but it’s important to check as the rules are complex. Just answer a few questions using this vote checker and you’ll be pointed in the right direction.

In a recent change of the rules thousands of new members will need to pay £25 in order to vote; this anti-democratic move will exclude many who are suffering most under austerity. ‘There should never be a price tag on democracy, but we can’t afford to lose this’ says Aaron Bastani in a new Momentum video backing Jeremy Corbyn.

If you’d like to register as a Labour supporter in order to vote in the leadership race you can do so between Monday 18 July 5pm and Wednesday 20 July 5pm.
