Election Day

1929 was the first year that every British citizen over the age of 21 could vote in a general election. Less that 100 years ago.

Everytime I vote, I remember that my great-grandparents, who lived and worked and in the case of my great grandfather fought for his country, didn’t have the right to choose who governed them. So everytime I vote I remember how lucky I am to be able to vote.

Today we vote and it matters. 

So please, go and vote because our system of government doesn’t work until we do.
