On 7 May 2015, the people of Bedford and Kempston will be voting in the UK general election, the Bedford Borough mayoral election, and the Bedford Borough Council elections. In Kempston, there will be Town Council elections as well. This is your opportunity to shape the future of your local community, Bedford, and the country.
If you do not vote, you do not have a voice. Over the years, men and women have marched, fought, and in some cases died for your right to vote. Today, billions of people around the world still do not have the right to vote. Do not forget how precious this right is. Do not take it for granted.
