Get More Students to Register to Vote
One third of young people of voting age in the United Kingdom are not registered to vote. This is a problem because it means the voices of the youth are not being heard. In contrast almost all people over the age of 65 are registered to vote which means that they could end up determining the shape of the country for future generations. The current push for people to register to vote is too general and does not focus in on the lack of the young voters. This approach clearly is not working since millions of young people still are not registered to vote.
