    Older people are more likely to vote in elections and referendums. It's estimated that only 43% of 18-24 year olds voted in the general election, compared to 78% of older people.

    What's worse is that this turnout favours the leave campaign in the referendum: mostly old people want to leave, while younger people want to stay - but older people vote more.

    Why aren't people voting?

    That's democracy. What's your problem?
    People choose to vote or dont. It's their choice.
