In the coming weeks, you will notice that it’s much quieter than usual on this blog and all the other blogs run by GDS. It’s because between midnight on Friday 21 April and the general election on Thursday 8 June is the pre-election period.
This means that we only communicate essential information, in line with the general election guidance for civil servants. This applies to @GOVUK on Twitter, this blog, and any other GDS blogs and social media channels.
While we’re on the subject of elections, don’t forget to register to vote. You can do it online and the deadline is 22 May. It takes about 5 minutes to register.
