Voting is vital. Want to know why? Our Vital Voters vloggers have explored 200 years of democracy in Britain to discover why we all need the right to have our say.
The group researched some key events in Britain’s history and discovered how democracy has developed, what it has achieved and why it is as important today as it always has been.
In 1969, the voting age was reduced from 21 to 18 years old. Our Vital Voters vloggers explore whether it’s time to give 16 year olds the right to vote.
Our Vital Voters vloggers explore People’s History Museum's archives to learn about the life of Thomas Bangbala who migrated to England in the 1920s. They discover some of the challenges Thomas faced as a migrant and why it’s essential that democracy protects the rights of us all.
All women didn’t win the right to vote until 1928. Our Vital Voters vloggers visit parliament to discover what women went through in the campaign for better representation.
