Do you want to be a teller?

May 6th is election day and, we hope, the day Nick Morphet is elected to Northumberland County Council. He’s in with a very real chance – but we need to sustain the intensity Nick and his team have applied to the campaign so far.

Can you help out by acting as a ‘teller’ on election day? A teller is someone who attends a polling station and collects voter information (usually just a name or their voter number) so that we can identify supporters who have not yet voted; we can then encourage or help them to get out and do so. We need as many people as possible so that we can cover the 9 polling stations in the Humshaugh ward from 7am on the day. This election could be won and lost on the narrowest of margins and so getting everyone out to vote for Nick is really important. Click here to request further details.
