The League of Young Voters UK was formed in 2014 to address the challenge that not enough young people are registering and voting in the UK.

Young people in the UK are simply not engaging in democracy at the same levels as their older counterparts - which is making those in power less likely to engage with them.

In the last general election, for example, only 44% of 18-24 year olds voted in comparison to 76% of 65+ year olds, and current voter registration rates suggest that this trend is set to continue.

We want to change that.
