General Election 2017
Everything you need to know about the General Election on 8th June - and how you can make sure your voice is heard.
Despite huge numbers of young people registering to vote, turnout at the 2015 General Election amongst 18-24 year olds was only 43% - compared to 70% of over 45s. Students of all ages turning out could make a radical difference to the result of this election.
