Are you going to Glastonbury this year? It’s the same day as the EU referendum, June 23rd! The European Championship is also happening around the same time, so if you’re likely to be away make sure to register for a postal vote so you can vote early. And don’t forget to register to with your home address rather than your university address. More info on registering to vote.
If you’re under 18 you cannot register to vote in the EU referendum but there is still plenty you can do to help the campaign. Speak to your family members about your concerns and ask them to consider voting on your behalf if they’re not interested themselves. This is your future!
If you’re interested in running or taking part in a debate at your school about the EU referendum this website is really useful: http://euref.demsoc.org/
You can also sign the official petition calling on the UK government to lower the voting age in the EU referendum. The law is unlikely to be changed in time, but it send a strong signal and may make a difference to future generations.
Don’t forget to explore the rest of this website to learn more about the benefits of the EU, and do show your support by signing up as a supporter or volunteer! Volunteers get access to our free online volunteer resources to print out or share online.
