YMCA Norfolk is urging young people to register to vote in the General Election on June 8 by the deadline of May 22.
Only 43% of 18 to 24-year-olds voted in the last election, the lowest of any age group, despite having the most to gain and the most to lose.
This needs to change if you want to see decision makers make you a priority through policies that will positively impact on your lives and prospects.
The message is simple: register and, on Thursday 8 June, take to the polls and vote.
By signing up, finding out what local candidates can offer and making an informed choice on polling day, you can make sure your voice is heard by the next Government.
“This election is one of the most important of recent years and it is essential that young people stand up and have their say,” said YMCA Norfolk CEO Tim Sweeting.
