Use Your Vote!

So, some of us might be complacent about using our right to vote. I wanted to highlight the many reasons it is SO SO SO important for you to exercise this right:

1) We have a right to choose who we want to vote for in free and fair elections, remember that in other countries people are now allowed this right, they have a government forced upon them.

2) The more young people vote the more likely politicians are to make policies that benefit you. I really wish I had considered this in my 20s but you just think that none of this influences you. It does guys, it really really does.

3) Emmeline Pankhurst and the suffragettes spent years fighting for the right for women to vote. Many women even lost their lives, don't let them have made that sacrifice in vain! Make them proud.

4) Your local MP can help fight important issues for you. They represent you and will defend you.

5) Living in a "safe" seat doesn't mean that your vote won't make a difference. If one person decides they can't be bothered to pop down the road to make their vote, it could make a HUGE difference. 

YOUR opinion counts.
YOU have the right to put your opinion forward!

USE IT!
