Emily Eavis urges Glastonbury goers to register for EU postal vote

"It would, frankly, be a bit daft not to have your say."
Glastonbury’s Emily Eavis is urging festival goers to register for a postal vote in the upcoming EU Referendum.

The vote takes place on June 23rd, which clashes with this summer’s festival. In an article for The Guardian, Eavis stresses the importance of voting.

“Registering to vote and then registering for your postal or proxy vote isn’t complicated or time-consuming,” she writes. “And this is a decision that really will affect the lives of everyone in the UK. It would, frankly, be a bit daft not to have your say.

“How you vote is a huge decision, and one which I think we all need to make for ourselves. To me, that means reading and listening and talking about it until you’ve made an informed choice. Clearly this campaign is going to be emotive and divisive, but I hope people will take the time to consider the arguments properly, rather than resorting to knee-jerk reactions.”

Glastonbury 2016 will be headlined by Muse, Adele and Coldplay. It takes place between 22nd and 26th June.
