You don’t need us to tell you how important it is to register to vote in the general election.
After all, you guys are way smarter than some media outlets think – you only have to see the results of our election-related Twitter polls to see that.
That said, it is worth noting that if you HAVEN’T already registered to vote, there’s less than a week left to do so.
Yep, that’s right, gals and guys. Time is at the essence and this new initiative by Thorpe Park might just give you the push to do it, ASAP.
The theme park have announced that they’re offering discounted £20 tickets on entrance to all 18-24 year olds who register to vote before 11.59pm on Monday 22nd May.
The Divisional Director at Thorpe Park, recently spoke out about the campaign. He said:
“This is one of the most significant general elections of our generation and we want to encourage more young people to register their chance to vote. We often hear young people are disengaged from politics, but a large number of our guests have shown an interest in politics, world events and social issues. However there are still a large number abstaining from voting in political elections. Young people are just as concerned about the financial future as any other person.”
Sadly in the 2015 general election, over half of 18-24 year olds didn’t use their vote.
Nearly, two thousand 18-24 year olds visit Thorpe Park every week. So hopefully this new scheme will encourage those who didn’t vote to hit polling booths on 8th June.
