13 Famous People Who Want You To F*cking Register To Vote
22 May 2017, 11:34
You have until midnight tonight to get yourself registered for the UK election on June 8th. Get it done!
Calling all UK citizens - today, May 22nd, is your final chance to register to vote in the 2017 general election, set to take place on June 8th.
In the last election in 2015, according to Ipsos Mori, just 43% of 18-24-year-olds went to the polls, compared with 78% of people aged 65 or over. That is a HUGE gap and, given the big difference in voting patterns between the generations, a higher turnout of young people really could alter the final result entirely.
And with issues like university tuition fees, the NHS and, of course, Brexit all on the table this time around, there is no more important time for first time voters to get online and register (do it here. It only takes 5 mins).
But don't just take our word for it - here are just a handful of the many famous faces who want you to get on your laptop and register the f*ck to vote!
