Monday is the last possible day to register to vote in the 2015 general election. Anyone wishing to vote must be registered by midnight on Monday or they will not be able to. The Electoral Commission reports that 1.7 million applications to register to vote have been made in the past five weeks, most of them online.The last general election in 2010 saw a voter turnout of 65.1% across the UK, an increase on the two previous elections in 2005 and 2001 when turnout was 61.4% and 59.4% respectively. The 2001 election was the first time since World War Two that turnout had fallen below 70%. Maybe clips like the one below will get people talking more about politics.
