Familiar YouTube faces like Hannah Witton and Calum McSwiggan have joined the "BloggersWhoVote" campaign to get their audiences registered.

So we're only a few weeks away from the snap General Election in the UK; but what a lot of people forget - especially younger folks - is how important registering is first. If you don't register, you can't vote; and with the deadline less than 72 hours away, bloggers from across the UK are doing their bit to get their audiences registered with "BloggersWhoVote".

Writer Laura Jane Williams orchestrated the campaign -with a video featuring the UK's blogging and vlogging elite.

The BloggersWhoVote hashtag began trending earlier today as creators from various walks of life got behind the campaign.

Familiar YouTube faces such as Katie Snooks, Hannah Witton and Calum McSwiggan pitched in for the campaign video; confirming that they will be voting on their country's future on the 8th of June.

It looks as though the younger generation will be the deciding factor between a Labour or Tory government - no matter which way they vote. Over 1.1 million more young people have reportedly registered to vote since the snap election was announced.
