Since 1950, voter turnout has steadily declined from around 85% to under 65% in 2010.

This has led to huge campaigns aimed at encouraging people to register and vote.

Voter advice organisation Bite the Ballot hosts sessions for young people to help them identify the issues that matter to them, and then urge them to register and vote.

"Young people don't vote but then I just think politics isn't simple. It's not just young people, you've got adults that felt really informed by the end our session so I think it's just making politics simple and understandable."
