How many voters share your name? Cunning social media stuff from the Labour Party

Ever wondered how many people the UK have exactly the same name as you? Well the Labour Party, yes how random is that (!?), is here to help. It has just unveiled a tool which tells you how many people who share your name are on the electoral register.

You simply put your name in and it gives you the figure along with some data on how popular your christian and surnames are. You can check out your friends and family too.

It is is obviously a bit of gimmick, but they launched it yesterday as part of the campaign to get as many people as possible registered to vote. Apparently there is the small matter of an election coming.

And for the record there are 17 other voters who share my name.
