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.
