"Use Your Vote's call to action could not have come at a more crucial time. The British people will be called to vote in a series of important elections this year, including a Referendum on EU membership that will shape our relationship with Europe for years to come. The lives of the younger generations, those sadly less likely to vote, will be the most profoundly affected, whatever the result. Young people are eminently capable of political engagement once they feel they have a voice and can affect change. It is the responsibility of all institutions and civil society organisations to make sure younger voters are enthused, energised, informed and ready to play their role in our democracy for the sake of their own future." Paola Buonadonna, Campaigns Director, The Wake Up Foundation
