BMG Research can reveal that four-fifths (81%) of the British public have no intention on partaking in any campaign activities ahead of the General Election on June 8th.

According to our poll, those aged 18-35 were the most likely to get involved (29%) in campaign activities, while only 13% of over 55s said the same.

The most popular campaign activity among 18-34 year-olds is sharing something about a candidate on social media, with 14% saying they would do so. This was compared with just 3% of those aged 55+.

The most popular campaign activity for the over 55s is signing a petition (6%).

Young people aged 18-34 were also found to be nearly twice as likely to donate money to a candidate or political party than the older population (5% of 18-34s, 3% of 55+).

Similarly, young people are twice as likely to attend hustings than older voters (6% 18-34s compared to 3% 55+).
