The British Youth Council today calls on all 18-24-year-olds to make their mark in polling booths across the country, as they seek to mobilise more young voters than previous elections, following attempts across the youth sector to get politicians to make firm commitments to young people ahead of the General Election.
Anna Rose Barker, Chair, British Youth Council said: “A huge amount is at stake in this General Election. Not only will the next Government decide on our domestic policies they will steer our exit from the European Union. Young people do care about politics but there’s no better way to show it than turning up! Your vote really does matter, use it!”
Young voters have until 10pm to vote and if you’re still undecided whether to vote – check out what the political parties had to say in response to our six demands.
Anna went on to say: “To raise the profile of the issues we care about and to demand they’re addressed, we must show up!”
Tomorrow the British Youth Council will be reminding the new Government to keep their promises to young people – especially those relating the six priority issues set out in our General Election Manifesto; “16: a new for democracy”, “Our minds matter, “Living wage for everyone”, “Save our youth services”, “Teach first aid in schools” and “Brexit negotiations”.
