[Voiceover 1]: Elections are coming up, so why would you want to vote?

[Voiceover 2]: For starters, if we don’t vote, politicians don’t listen.

[Voiceover 3]:Politicians are in charge of so many things: local schools, services, leisure centres, bin collections, post, sites. If we all vote for politicians who will improve these things, we will all benefit.

[Voiceover 4]: It's also important to know that you don’t have to live in a house to vote – Travellers who live in a trailer can vote, Travellers who live on a site can vote, Travellers who live in a flat or house can vote. We can all vote.

[Voiceover 2]: Registering to vote means giving yourself the option to get involved.

[Voiceover 1]: You might wonder how to choose who to vote for. You can search what people or the parties they are part of have done online or ? It can be helpful to look for politicians who have helped people like you or who have the same beliefs that you do.

[Voiceover 2]: Gypsy, Roma and Travellers votes matter, and the more of us that vote the better.

[Voiceover 1]: Get your family involved, talk to your family, friends and everyone else about what voting means to you.
