5th February 2014 marks the UK’s first National Voter Registration Day.
The aim of the day is simple, to empower future generations of young people to realise that they have a say and a stake in decisions affecting their future. National Voter Registration Day aims to engage every young person, especially those furthest away from politics.
This day of co-ordinated action will see businesses, community groups and schools registering thousands of eligible young voters, showing them how and why they should take part in our democratic system - sparking their political journeys into local, national and globally-minded citizens.
The campaign organisers, Bite the Ballot, who are on a mission to inspire young Britons to embrace their democratic responsibilities, have created fantastic, free resources to run registration events.
