Today (5 February) is National Voter Registration Day, aimed at getting as many young people on the register as possible.
It is all about making sure young people, including students, have a say in what decisions are made in their communities.
The first step is to make sure you are registered and know just how important you are: as individuals and as a collective voice.
Getting more students registered to vote means the politicians have to sit up and listen to what matters to them as they could potentially vote them out come election time. Today is all about proving that students are votes worth winning.
The Guild has been working with NUS and Students’ Unions across the country to ensure that the issues that matter most to students are being taken seriously by politicians.
The Guild is asking all Liverpool students to share what matters to them the most. They will then lobby for the top five issues during this year’s General Election: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WHWQ5TZ.
Keep an eye out for the walking ballot box and head to the Guild stall in the Mountford Hall to get registered and everyone who signs up will be in with a chance to win a £50 Liverpool One voucher.
