Make Your Voice Heard! - National Voter Registration Day

Polls.jpg

It’s National Voter Registration day today - a great day to take that first step to exercise your right to have a say on the most important issues that affect you. The UK’s first National Voter Registration Day is organised by Bite the Ballot who aim to empower young people to take informed decisions at the ballot box. 

Bite the Ballot say:

" Young people are the most under-represented group on the electoral register, this has resulted in 16-24 year olds being the hardest hit by government cuts. By just registering to vote, you are telling government that you are a vote worth winning, not one to be ignored."

Rachel commented:

“It is really important to ensure you are registered to vote and have your say in the democratic process. The next elections we have coming up are the European Parliamentary Election & Leeds City Council Elections on 22nd May 2014 and everybody should have a say in choosing their local representatives, but you don't have a voice if you don't register.

"I feel it is important that all local people have the opportunity to take part in the democratic process and express their views at the ballot box."

It's easy to register to vote: visit http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk/ or  http://bitetheballot.co.uk/ for more information and to sign up.
