With less than a week to go before the deadline to register to vote, Thorpe Park is offering discounts to encourage young people to make their voices heard.

Anyone aged 18 to 24 who brings proof of registering with them will be able to buy a ticket for £20 from May 22 to 26.

Proof can be either a valid printed polling card or an email confirmation of registration, shown on a mobile phone.

The registration deadline is next Monday, May 22 at 11.59pm.

In the 2015 General Election, 57 per cent of 18-25 year olds did not vote, according to Ipsos Mori.

Dominic Jones, Divisional Director at Thorpe Park, said: “This is one of the most significant general elections of our generation and we want to encourage more young people to register their chance to vote.

“We often hear young people are disengaged from politics, but a large number of our guests have shown an interest in politics, world events and social issues. However there are still a large number abstaining from voting in political elections. Young people are just as concerned about the financial future as any other person.

“Over two thousand 18-24 year olds pass through our gates every week, so we wanted to do something to encourage the younger generation to hit the polling stations on June 8th.”
