A BMG Research poll has found that nearly a third (31%) of Brits don’t know whether voters from Northern Ireland vote in the UK General Elections or not. Almost half (46%) of 18 to 24 year-olds admitted they did not know.
More than one in ten (12%) people think voters in Northern Ireland do not vote in the UK elections.
However, over half (56%) correctly judged the statement – “Voters in Northern Ireland do not vote in the UK General Elections” – to be false.
Of those asked, four in ten 18-34 year-olds also said the statement was false, compared to a majority (67%) of older people (65+).
