Arc Theatre, based at Kingsley Hall has released a short film entitled ‘Voices for Votes’, which was funded by the Women’s Vote Centenary Grant Scheme.

The eight-minute film celebrates 100 years since some women won the right to vote. It was filmed during the May half term by Arc’s Raised Voices group and other young women age 10+ from Barking & Dagenham.

The way you register to vote has changed. Over the past few months the Electoral Commission have switched to an Individual Electoral Registration system (IER) which means that people are no longer registered by household. This means that as an individual you will have to register to vote.

How do I know if I am registered or not?

If you are not on the system you will have received a letter from your local authority informing you that you need to re-register.
