U.K. General Election: Join the #PowerToDecide challenge

The U.K. General Election is being held on 8 June 2017. This is a great opportunity for young people, in particular, to have their voices heard and to shape the future of this country. We want them to take this opportunity to go out and vote!

So here is our question to our U.K. Creators: What are you doing to get the message out to vote? How about getting involved in the #PowerToDecide challenge!

Here’s how it works:

Not voting is the same as letting others decide for you what happens to the country.

We want you to get this point across to your fans by making a video where you leave an important decision in someone else’s hands. You can have a stranger choose your next video topic or some crazy outfit you wear for a day. Get creative!

End your video by talking about how giving up control like this made you feel. Encourage your fans not to give up their #PowerToDecide and to go out and vote on 8 June. You can also tag three other creators to take part in the challenge!

We’ll use highlights from these challenge videos to create a campaign video that millions of people across the U.K. will see. Want to have your video considered? Submit it to our agency partner at powertodecide@wearesocial.net by 9 a.m. 24 May!

Final note: To vote in the General Election on 8 June, make sure to register by 11:59 p.m. on 22 May!
