Hi TSR!

So my A-Level Politics teacher has enlisted my help along with the other Politics students to encourage my sixth form to register to vote (sixth formers that are 18 can vote in the December election too). As a result, I have to go around with my peers and present the arguments for and against registering to vote.

Trouble is, I have to argue the side against registering to vote. (Disclaimer: my teacher effectively wants the other side to "win" in order to convince as many people as possible, but I have to present valid arguments so both sides are represented >.<)

I'm struggling to find solid arguments so I'm hoping you might be able to help. For those of you who can't register or don't want to: why?

Thanks in advance guys!

I am registered, but I know some people in my year don’t feel they know enough to be able to confidently vote? And they’re struggling to find unbiased sources?? (ngl I don’t think they’re looking that hard but anyway)

Hope this helps slightly?

i'm not old enough to vote but i know in my constituency it's always between two parties and i know that some people use that as an excuse not to vote as if they vote for a party that isn't one of the two big ones then their vote feels wasted as they people they vote for won't become our mp

I am going to try to vote, but, I have been warned that my postal vote (California) may not arrive in time. I don't find that acceptable, and could be spun as a reason not to try.

Don't want to support any of the major parties, so probably won't be voting or will vote for some random party. Views don't align. No anti-establishment parties that have any chance of gaining significant representation.
