MAY ELECTIONS CONTINUED: Shadow Minister explains what’s been happening to ensure the upcoming elections are covid-safe

 

It’s part two of our conversation ahead of May’s elections- they were postponed from last year due to the pandemic.

Don’t forget to search ‘election’ on your local tv channel site for more information. Simple Politics began by asking shadow minister Cat Smith, what’s the point in voting if the two parties have been in power for a century?

This video from the electoral commission has been launched to explain how visiting a polling station might look slightly different as restrictions continue to ease.

And some may have concerns about whether it is safe to vote?

And campaigning is going to look much the same too...

To find out what’s happening where you are, and to see who’s standing - head to your local tv channel’s website, and search ‘election’. Or there’s more from Instagram’s Simple Politics.
