Disbanded


In Summer 2019, the Right To Vote campaign folded with the group subsequently deleting their website.[3]

However, the official Conservatives for a People's Vote (C4PV) and Young Conservatives for a People's Vote (YC4PV) continued to campaign for a confirmatory referendum, participating in the ‘Let us be Heard’ march in October 2019.[6] Both groups formally disbanded in January 2020.[7]
