The big countdown is well underway, towards the General Election, and in Birmingham things are well in place for stalwart campaigners to step-up their own agenda-to encourage more Black voters to the ballot box, come this May 20.

One campaigner leading the operations in the city is well known community activist and spokesperson is Desmond Jaddoo who has joining forces with Birmingham’s African & Caribbean Millennium Centre to host weekly registration clinics.

Founder of the Birmingham Empowerment Forum, Jaddoo has steadfastly campaigning, ensuring that people from the African and Caribbean communities don’t miss out on taking up their right to vote by holding regular registration clinics at the ACMC, in Winson Green, in the city.

He said: “The number of people who have the right to, but, are not registered to vote is of increasing concern – this has been recognised with the launch of various initiatives.

At the ACMC there will be people regularly on hand to assist in any way necessary and the service is absolutely free.

If people want a voice, to be heard, in Britain, they must vote.”
