London Mayor election campaign needs teenage ambassador for Newham

A London-wide campaign is looking for an ambassador to encourage young voters to have their say in the upcoming London Mayor and Assembly elections.

London Elects, a politically neutral information campaign, are searching for a teenager from Newham who is passionate about London who turns 18 on May 3 2012, the same day as the election.

Sarah Garrett, from London Elects, said: “We want young people who love London as much as we do to join us to make sure that the capital’s young people know how to have their say on 3rd May.

“We’re looking for one teenager from every borough in London who will be celebrating their 18th birthday on 3 May, to join us and help our campaign to get young people out on polling day and have their say in this important election.”

To get involved, tweet @LondonElects, find the campaign on Facebook, or email
