New figures reveal the Tory and Lib Dems’ disastrous reforms to electoral registration mean one million voters have already fallen off the electoral roll.

The new figures confirm the concerns that areas with high student populations and areas with high proportions of residents renting their homes would see a substantial drop in the electoral roll, meaning thousands of young people are going to lose their say in the election.

This election is hugely important for young people. It is a choice that will have implications for them now and for years to come.

Young people are far too often neglected by politicians - the Tories are overwhelmingly focusing on the elderly vote as they know that in many cases, older people reliably vote. That is not to say Labour will neglect the older vote – far from it, but we believe young people should not feel alienated by politics.

I regularly meet with the UK Youth Parliament representatives elected in my area and keep up to date with their concerns and labour believe that as the decision makers of tomorrow, young people should not lose their voice due to this calculated Tory policy – that is why we are launching a drive to register the missing million voters who have disappeared from the Electoral Register.

Labour is also committed to lowering the voting age to 16 and will be publishing a Young Britain manifesto that everyone has the chance to help shape by telling us what their priorities are for this campaign and for the next government as we want more voices heard, not silenced.

Join me in my campaign to save our local NHS

I am totally opposed to the Government slashing £3.8 million from GP’s budgets in our area which could see small practices closing; 38 full time doctors or 95 full time nurses being lost and patients waiting longer to be seen.

Please sign this petition which will be presented by me in the House of Commons and help save our local NHS
