Use your vote, you can make a difference.
Approximately 15% of people eligible to vote, were not registered to vote in last election
34% of those registered to vote didn't vote.
Thats a total of 49% of people that could vote, not voting.
The Tories had 24% of the vote
Labour had 20% of the vote
Yet 49% didn't vote.
More people didn't vote than voted for both of the Main parties combined.
Some people would have you believe that Labour doesn't stand a chance, however if you look at the voting it was actually pretty close.
Unfortunately our first past the post election system paints a different picture.
But if 10% of those that didn't vote, voted. There could be a completely different picture.
