So you've registered to vote.. now what?

The General election is everywhere, where ever I turn on campus or in town, there are people handing me flyers and putting up posters. There is no getting away from it. Frankly, I am pretty excited. This is my first general election that I am able to vote, and whilst it can feel like your one tiny vote can't make a difference, just think if everyone felt that way?

So Monday was the last day to register (which hopefully you have all done!), but now what? We have just under 2 weeks to decide who to vote for, but don't know where to start. 

Firstly, make sure the decision is your own! Some people may be persuaded by their parents or family and friends, but make up your own mind. At the end of the day, that is why democracy is there, for everyone to state their opinions. 

Here are some websites that I have found helpful whilst making my decision for the big day!

Students and young people have the power to sway the results of this years general election. Make sure that you don't give up this chance that is given to us! 

Have a chat with some of the candidates and parties that you see around your campus or town. And most of all, vote for what you believe in.
