It's no secret that politics is reaching fever pitch with a snap election only 27 days away and only 30% turn out for the Metro Mayor vote. 

To encourage those who perhaps wouldn't usually vote to get out and do so, Matter Foods are offering free chips from their Fishponds based takeaway if you come in with proof of your registering to vote! The only stipulation is that you have to be between 18 - 24. 

Fancy a pint to wash that down? Then present that registration email to the bar at the following venues: 

The Lazy Dog, 
The Pipe and Slippers, 
The Windmill, 
The Plough, 
Red Lion, 
Biblos Calypso Kitchen, 
The Shakespeare (Totterdown)
The Bank Tavern 
Flipside Cocktail Club
The Drapers Arms 
The Inn on the Green 
 The Love Inn 

There are also potential rewards for people who are already registered to vote, with two tickets to both Love Saves the Day and Shambala festivals being awarded for giving the best possible answer to the questions "why will you be voting" and "what’s the best way you have persuaded a friend to vote?"

The website behind the movement Vote This Year Get Free Beer say:

"This election is like no other, we truly live in unique times. Not since the end of the second world war have there been such huge political changes, which will change the course of the country that we'll all inherit."

Here at Wriggle we say cheers to democracy!
