Young people in Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged to register to vote in the EU referendum later this year.
Lichfield District Council is backing the nationwide #RegAFriend campaign being organised by the Electoral Commission.
The initiative involves people posting a photo once they’ve registered, sharing it on social media and nominating their friends to do the same.
Diane Tilley, Electoral Registration Officer for Lichfield District Council, said: “If you’re not registered, you can’t vote, and the views of an entire generation could be ignored.
“This is why we’re taking part in the #RegAFriend campaign to get more young people registered in time for the Police Crime Commissioner election in May and the EU referendum that is happening in June.”
The deadline to register to vote in the upcoming Police & Crime Commissioner election is April 18 and the deadline for the EU referendum is June 7.
People can register for their vote online.
