At midnight, millions of people will miss out on their chance to vote in the General Election because they haven’t registered. 

While more than two million people have joined the electoral register since Theresa May announced the vote last month, the Electoral Commission estimates that seven million more have yet to do so. 

With the vote set to decide who will lead the UK for the next four years, it will determine the direction the country takes in terms of Brexit, tuition fees and social care.
