Bite the Ballot: #InOutLive
Bite the Ballot is an organisation that encourages young people to register to vote and get involved with politics. They hosted a live debate on the EU referendum on Sunday, with Bob Geldof, Katie Hopkins, and David Vujanic on the panel of ‘idols and influencers’ in a room of young voters.
Also in the room was Full Fact. Specifically, our Director, Will, and our EU referendum campaign manager, Phoebe. They were on hand to answer questions on security, the economy, trade, and other issues important to young people. You can watch the debate in full below, as well see some of the tweets from the event.
