We’re happy to support the “Bite the Ballot” campaign to spread the word about how important it is to use your vote at Election time.
Our Community Life Champions recently invited volunteers from Bite the Ballot into around 70 Asda stores to help customers and colleagues register to vote.
Bite the Ballot is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to raising awareness of politics and increasing interest in the topic. Their aim is to inspire young people to be counted and make informed decisions at the ballot box, encouraging them to take power and become the champions that will change the face of British politics.
Bite the Ballot campaigner Rose explains: “Politicians won’t write policies for people who don’t turn up on Election Day – let alone for those who don’t appear on the electoral register. So the first step is to make sure that every 16-24 year old is registered and is aware of how important they are: as individuals and as a collective voice.”
You can find out more about their campaign on their website.
