In just 72-hours almost 200,000 people have registered to vote, more than half are under the age of 35 and this will be seen as a huge boost for the Labour Party.
Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party mainly had support from young voters in the last general election.
Speculation is rife that Britain will see a general election soon, although an attempt to trigger one failed on Tuesday evening, and MPs are to vote again on Monday.
Sym Roe, from the non-profit Democracy Club said, “Compared to other years this is several times bigger than what we would expect for early September.
“It’s very unusual to see something like this before an election has even been announced, but it’s almost certainly because of all the talk there has been around one.”
He added you would normally expect voters age range to be “fairly well distributed, and not skewed to the under 35s.
