Register to vote

Post-'Brexit' politics are volatile and anything may happen in the months and years ahead. Local elections are due in May 2022 and by-elections & a general election could happen at any time, so if you're not registered to vote, please take five minutes to sign up and help to #StopBrexit.


General election 2019

A general election took place on Dec. 12, 2019 and we didn't get the national election result we wanted, but this is not over. The Remain movement is fighting to rejoin the EU as the economic and political damage caused by 'Brexit' becomes ever more apparent. We need to keep up the pressure on a far right-wing, corrupt and inept government facing potential problems on so many fronts, so please join us.

National party vote share

Pro-referendum parties: 50.4% (approx. 16.5m voters)
Anti-EU parties: 45.7% (approx. 14.5m voters)

May 2019 European elections

Pro-Remain parties took the biggest vote share in the European Parliament election on May 23, 2019,  despite gains for the so-called 'Brexit Party', and pro-European parties are still in the majority in the European Parliament. There are reports that many EU citizens resident in the UK were turned away from polling stations, despite registering to vote in time. If anyone in Enfield has experienced this, please let us know and we'll report it to the council, the Electoral Commission and the EU. A general election or another referendum is possible later this year or early next year, so please register to vote ASAP if you haven't already done so, using the link to the right. EU nationals resident in the UK don't have the right to vote in general elections, but we will push the case for them to have the vote in any future referendum.

May 2018 local elections

Enfield for Europe advised voters to vote for pro-EU candidates standing for election to Enfield Council on May 3, 2018. Thanks to all those voters who asked us for information on candidates' views on the EU and to those candidates who replied to our survey. The local and national results of the elections are in the link below and to the right. The poll resulted in a larger pro-Remain majority on the council. 'Brexit' is not a done deal and we can stop it so please write to your new councillors asking them to put maximum pressure on their national parties to oppose the government's plan to leave the EU. They need to know we won't accept the damage that leaving will do to local services. Please also register to vote using the link above if you've not already done so - a general election could happen at any time and we need to be ready for it.

Please urge your local councillors to support the UK's EU membership and keep the European flag flying at Enfield Civic Centre
