Let’s get Britain’s YOUth to Vote!





  • Manifesto' is a mission statement or a policy statement. It is available to all members of the public and all political parties must have a manifesto.</li>
  • Only 37% of 18-25 year olds voted in the 2005 elections- lowest of any group.</li>
  • If politicians see that there’s a high turnout of young people at the elections they will take them more serious.</li>
  • Please sign our petition for lowering the voting age to 16- this would provide the opportunity for many young people who are already politacali active to have a say, and also engage those who are not.</li>
