Being able to vote gives you a say on who represents you in your local council, in the UK Parliament and in Europe. If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, being registered also gives you a say in who represents you there.
At any election in your area, one of the candidates will be selected to represent you whether you vote or not. If you’re registered, you’ll have the chance to have a say on who represents you by voting.
Some people are quick to say when they disagree with politicians, but if you don’t register and don’t vote, you won’t be able to have your say.
Come along to these community events for all to meet and ask the candidates questions on their policies and how they will represent you!
