To clarify, it doesn't matter whether you are under 18 and 'not registered to vote'...you can register at 16 or 17, and arguably should.

By the way, EU citizens living (or studying) in the UK can vote in the EUparl elections. Unlike for the Referendum. Have you registered to vote?

You can register now for the EU Election, and change your address later when you need to.

I'm some countries (eg Australia) it's compulsory to vote. We don't have that here but voting is an important part of adulting
We disagree hugely on brexit but on this I wholeheartedly agree, regardless of your political persuasion you have to vote.

I'm registered at home but there's a pretty good chance I'll be in my uni city at the time, where I'm not registered. Good memes.

I’m Labour - but they are supporting a second referendum this time, so don’t really know about any party I can properly get behind this time round.

Exactly. The party conference voted for a 2nd ref, but JC certainly hasn't confirmed it for the EU elections the last time I checked.

They don't really show a united desire to actually implement this 'policy', however.

And this ladies and gentlemen- this poll shows why the toxic leftist inexperienced views of TSR users do not represent that of the country. Nor the will of the people.

because registering to ensure your voice and hence the voice and will of the people goes against the will of the people

Because the majority of users CANT vote. Hence they have no political power and don't deserve it until they've experienced some of the real world. It just shows that all the leftist opinions on this site (who seem like the majority) hold no real political power and have formed their opinions without real experiences of the world. Hence they in fact are the minority. Hence we should promptly ignore them

Are you also saying anyone with left wing ideals is naive?

Better to be naive and learning than to shut people who are genuinely interested in politics down for inexperience when everyone has to start somewhere.
