May 2023 elections: Resources for voter registration

Overview of resources

To help to reach as many people as possible we’ve created a range of digital and print resources you can use to promote voter registration before the deadline to register for the May 2023 local elections on:

  • 17 April in England
  • 28 April in Northern Ireland

We are running our voter registration campaign which asks voters if they’ve ‘Got 5?’ to register to vote.

Running a bath? Doing your laundry? Or waiting for your kettle to boil? We’re showing voters how quick and easy it can be to register to vote – it only takes 5 minutes.

Resources include:

  • Posters
  • Social media images
  • MPU GIF
  • Template social media messaging
  • Template press releases
