Wiltshire Climate Alliance General Election Guide

In most Wiltshire constituencies there are predicted to be a difference of just a few thousand votes between the top two candidates – so your vote and your influence could help make a difference and elect a candidate who will be on the right side of history in the face of the climate and nature crises we face.

It can be hard to know the best way to vote and and make your voice heard so we've put together this simple guide to help.

The Essentials

If you're short of time make sure you don't miss doing these essentials.

Register to vote and go postal

We recommend you also register for a postal vote to be more certain you can vote, deadline 5pm 19-June.

Work out who to vote for

Check our constituency pages to find out who you can vote for, where they stand on climate and nature issues, and who has a reasonable chance of winning.

Vote on 4th July! (and take ID)

If you haven't posted your vote, go to your polling station, taking your completed and sealed postal ballot paper if you have one. Photo ID is otherwise now needed for UK Elections. Find out more here.

Other ways to get involved

Climate change is one of the top five concerns for people in the UK, but it doesn't always get the attention it needs for politicians to be persuaded to act. Here are some of the ways you can change that in this election campaign.

Contact your candidates

Let your candidates know that you care about climate and nature issues and ask them to commit to take action if they are elected.

 

A simple way to do this is to sign an open letter asking them to support the Climate and Nature Bill - a bold science led plan for a new law to tackle the climate and nature crises. Find out more here.

Attend an event

Attend a hustings events to meet your candidates - check here for events we have confirmation of so far. These are an opportunity to find out more about where they stand on climate and nature issues and make your voice heard.

You could also join the 'Restore Nature Now' March on the 22nd June in London.

Put up a poster

Put up a ‘I'm a Climate Voter’ poster or a poster for the party you have chosen to best represent your concerns about climate and nature issues. You can order posters from Greenpeace here.

Join with others

Join a local climate action group or the Wiltshire Climate Alliance general election team. You can find details of our member groups here or contact us here. You could also help the party you have chosen to vote for by joining their canvassing.
