Politics touch every part of a young adults future, through education, the economy (jobs, the price of goods, services and food), training, workers' rights, the NHS, and the availability of affordable rented or ownership housing. You can use your vote to have some power through government over what direction YOUR future takes, what opportunities are made available by the next government and what doors might be closed.
