No Vote No Voice campaign
Unite has launched a campaign - #novotenovoice - to get one million people registered to vote in the Mat 7th election. A red bus is criss crossong the country to highlight the issue.
New registration arrangements are meaning people are dropping off registers; groups not registered are exactly the groups politicians tend to ignore.

Just 44% of people aged 18 to 24 voted in the last election. 37% of people on zero hours contracts are aged 16-24.
Black and ethnic minorities were three times less likely to be registered to vote than white Britons in 2010.
Only 58% of private renters are registered to vote compared to almost 90% of owner occupiers.
