Why Vote?! #NotThe33
sign up for the General Elections, here in the UK. This post is part of a social campaign to raise awareness of how important it is to vote. Our country will be going to the polls on June 8th. The last day you can register to vote is May 22nd. Today!
It is so incredibly important to vote and I cannot stress that enough which is why I have teamed up with a group of other lovely bloggers to help raise awareness and promote voting.
I am not writing a post telling you who to vote for. In my opinion, I am happy to share my voting preferences but it is a completely individual and private discussion that should be personally dealt with.
So why should you vote?
Too many people think that voting isn't important. Too many people think that their vote can't make a difference. Yet these figures show how votes DO make a difference. If all those who think it doesn't make a difference actually voted, then a difference could by made.
In the Local Elections 2 weeks ago, a seat in South Blyth was awarded by drawing straws after there was a tie between the two candidates...the turnout was just 26.6%.
This campaign is being tagged with the hashtag #NotThe33. Be sure to share your own views on Twitter and Instagram and if you tag me, I will try to share as many as possible!
A big thank you to Helen for allowing me to be a part of this campaign. Be sure to see her Twitter (@Helsieboo) for all things related to the project.
So what is important to remember is that today is the very last day to sign up to vote in the UK General Election. Go go GO!
