Free Voter's Handbook this weekend

Everything but the result.

It’s the closest general election for decade so don’t cast your vote without being properly informed.

The Independent Voter’s Handbook, free with the print edition this weekend, tells you everything you could possibly want to know about the background to next Thursday’s poll, from the basics of electorial law to the key concepts and statistics – all spiced up with plenty of colourful anecdotes involving bribery, drunkeness and fraud.

Our unique A-to-Z of electorial facts, figures, rules, records, and trivia – in two pocket-sized 68-page booklets – is the perfect complement to our newspapers’ politcial coverage, and essential reading for free-thinking voters.

Part 1: A-to-L – Saturday 1 May

Part 2: M-to-Z – Sunday 2 May
