Have you registered to vote?
More than half of young people eligible to vote may not be registered to do so according to the Electoral Commission. How can first time voters be encouraged to register?
The Electoral Commission claims more than 3.5m people may not be registered, while its research indicates that 56% of 17-25 year olds are not on the electoral roll.
Officials have been urged to make "one final push" to get more people registered to vote in the general election.
Are you a first time voter? Have you registered to vote? If not, why not? What should the political parties do to engage with the electorate? What would get you out to vote?
