British Youth Council calls for a big youth vote turnout in the EU referendum today. Whatever side you are on, if help to achieve a high turnout amongst younger voters, then you will strengthen yours and our mandate to be heard in a post-referendum world. We know that older people appear to have more influence because they have a higher turnout at elections. So when we vote more – we’ll get more #votepower.
Jon Foster, Chair, British Youth Council said: “Whatever the result in the referendum we need a high turnout so we can campaign with confidence and be heard on your issues in an uncertain future – on equal pay, on equal votes, on equal health. Our voice needs to be heard all year round not just in and out at elections. Turnup Turnout – Vote today!.”
