Comedian Russell Kane will help launch a campaign to encourage under 25s to register to vote tomorrow.
Centrepoint Parliament, a group of homeless young people, will launch its You Got A Problem? campaign at Rich Mix from 12.30pm.
The group say that with four million under 25s not registered to vote, young people have become an easier focus for central government cuts.
Hundreds of young people from Centrepoint hostels across London are expected to the join the launch and encourage members of the public to sign the electoral register and share problems and issues that matter to them.
Centrepoint Parliament spokesman Tsion, 20, said: “We need more young people to register to vote and be heard. If we don’t, we’ll be overlooked by politicians from all parties.”
