This isn’t about party politics. This is much
more important. 

On June 8, 2017 the nation went to the polls. An incredible 72% of 18-25 year olds turned out and voted. The outcome was a hung parliament which meant no political party had more than half of the MPs after the general election. In other words, the Conservatives won the largest number of MPs but didn’t secure a big enough majority to form a government that would work properly. In order to solve the problem, they will form a coalition government. It's likely to be with the Democratic Unionist Party

But it's not all confirmed. So get educated and get involved. Because what happens next is crucial to young people.

Use Your Voice wants to help shine a light on the issues young people have around the democratic process. We will do this through filmmaking, events, and the creation of a 'toolkit' that will help educate and inform about voting - and wider political structures and terms.
