    Mines not June, its July and I'm fuming.

    Not that it would have mattered, I live in a strong tory constituency. Labour only got 5% of the vote last time so I know whos going to win here.

    Mines 26th. Im quite annoyed especially since we have to wait like another 5 years. It would have made sense to do it in August? (So people in the same year at school gets to vote ect. Probably not)

    But tbh I would have no idea who to vote for. I would have still wanted to though and have had the opportunity at least.

    I remember someone saying on this they were born on the 9th. My god. Thats terrible.

    Mines on the 9th June. I'm extremely annoyed. If I had the chance to vote, I would've voted Labour.

    Why would you be furious? There has to exist an age cutoff for voting and you just happen to fall behind it in the case of this election

    I know the feeling was a month too young to vote in the brexit vote last year :angry:

    but I mean that's going to happen to some people people in every single vote that exists so what can you really do about it

    although one day is preeeety unfortunate tbh
