The stats are from the 2010 General election but the principle is the same. Please vote tomorrow, your vote really does make a difference
So, if just before the 2010 general election I had started my own political party and if everyone who was eligible to vote but who didn’t on that day had changed their minds and voted for me, then I would have won.
Let that sink in and see why your vote really does matter.
Some people don’t vote because they think it will make no difference, but the numbers show that a huge amount of the population of the UK don’t understand the power that they have.
The percentage share of the vote from 2010 is shown in this pie chart. (The percentages are taken from the BBC website).
At the last general election the Conservatives got the largest share of votes which was 36%.
The turnout at those same elections was 65.1% which means that 34.9% of people who were eligible to, actually didn’t vote.
