GRAVATT: Register to vote on June 8th

Thomas Gravatt, Parliamentary Candidate for Southampton Test, writes;

Hundreds of thousands of young people have already signed up to vote in the General Election in June. Among that number will be a huge number of students.

I've found that there's always confusion amongst students about where they can be registered to vote, this even led to some of my friends being unable to vote in the Referendum. It's important to clarify that students can be registered both at university and at home - but can only vote in one place.

Students and young people could help make the difference in the General Election on June 8th. Like me, most voted last year to Remain in the European Union. Both Labour and the Conservatives voted to trigger Article 50 despite Theresa May's Hard Brexit agenda.

The only pro European vote in this election is a vote for the Liberal Democrats.

I would like to urge all young people to visit gov.uk/register-to-vote, to make sure you don't miss this opportunity to vote to change the direction of this country, before it's too late.
