This Valentine?s Day London Elects – the independent body responsible for delivering and encouraging participation in the Mayor of London and London Assembly elections - was desperately seeking young voters.
Do you turn 18 on 3 May? Do you love London? If so, you could help a London-wide campaign to help encourage young voters to have their say in the election for the Mayor of London and the London Assembly.
Yesterday, London Elects launched a social media campaign to find youngsters that are passionate about London and their local area.
Sarah Garrett, from London Elects, said: “On 3 May, Londoners will be able to vote for the Mayor of London and 25 London Assembly members. These people make decisions that affect many aspects of your everyday life in London.
“We want young people who love London as much as we do to join us to make sure that the capital?s young people know how to have their say on 3rd May. We’re looking for one teenager from every borough in London who will be celebrating their 18th birthday on 3 May, to join us and help our campaign to get young people out on polling day and have their say in this important election.”
To vote in the London election you need to be at least 18 years old on 3 May 2012, live in London and be a British, Republic of Ireland, Commonwealth or EU citizen.
