With election day fast approaching, we want to make it as easy as possible for people to receive news and results.
So this year, in addition to our existing coverage via Twitter, Google+ and www.birminghamnewsroom.com, we’re adding mobile messages via WhatsApp.
We’ll publish voter information, candidate lists results and other election news via Whatsapp – both in the build-up to May 7 and throughout the General Election and local elections counts.
How to subscribe
For election news, results, pictures and video, delivered straight to your mobile, WhatsApp the message BrumVotes to 07593 166 117 (you need to save this number in your phone’s contacts first).
How to unsubscribe
If you change your mind, WhatsApp STOPBrumVotes to the same number.
