#RegAFriend is being run by the Electoral Commission in partnership with the National Union of Students (NUS).

The campaign asks young people to encourage their friends to register to vote by sharing photos of their ‘voter cross’ and using the hashtag #RegAFriend.

The deadline to register to vote in the upcoming local and Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) elections is 18 April, and the deadline to register to vote for the EU referendum is 7 June.

It only takes a few minutes to register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.

Local and PCC elections will take place on Thursday, May 5 and the EU referendum will take place on Thursday, June 23.

City Vibe’s John-Paul Dickie spoke to Julie Rouston, electoral services officer at City of Lincoln Council about the campaign and how young people can get involved in democracy. Click ‘listen now’ above to find out more.
