Big Issue sellers: Why voting is important to us

If you don't vote, "you can't moan", says Big Issue seller Clive Davis.

Homeless voters can submit a "declaration of local connection" form which allows them to register at a place where they are likely to spend a substantial amount of their time.

Speaking to 5 live's Rowan Bridge, former drug user Clive said "now I'm clean... voting seems a little bit more important than it did".

Fellow Big Issue seller John Murphy said his priority in the election is "getting a party in who will be more inclined to educate youngsters from backgrounds like mine".
