Have you registered to vote?
Lots of young people are missing from the electoral register, which means they don’t get a say in how things are run.
YOUR VOTE MATTERS, so make sure you’re on and ready to vote at the next General Election on 8 June!!
Why Should you vote?
- Politics affects every part of your life – from health to education – voting is an opportunity for you to have your say.
- It is your choice whether to vote and who to vote for, but if you don’t register, that choice has gone.
- If young people are not registered to vote, it reinforces the misguided opinion that young people are not interested in politics, making it easier for politicians to ignore you.
- People fought and died to win the right to vote. It is a privilege many in the world still do not have.
What do you need when you register to vote?
- your national insurance number
- a spare 5 minutes
