General Election 2024: A guide for young people

On 4th July 2024, a General Election is taking place in the UK. This is a great opportunity to shape the future of the country and make sure that politicians represent the views of young people. So get ready! 

We’ve pulled together everything you need to know to get involved in the election – and beyond. This guide is especially relevant if you’re 18 or over and eligible to vote, but we’ve also included information for under-18s about how to make your voice heard.
