Today is the final day to register to vote so we can make our mark in the UK elections. If you’re not convinced you’re registered, just fill out the form here. It’s super quick to do online.
Only 44% of 18 – 24 yr olds voted in the 2010 elections and the government haven’t been afraid to attack their rights – massively increasing uni fees and discussing forbidding them housing benefit. You get £15.20 less than other adults on Jobseeker’s Allowance, just because of your age. You get £1.37 less for your hourly minimum wage than other adults, if you’re aged 18 – 20.
I’m not trusting my parents to decide my future for me. I’m going to go out and vote. Register here: https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
