Apply to be in BBC young voter panel

BBC generation 2015 project

If you are aged between 18 and 24, and eligible to vote in May's General Election, the BBC wants to hear from you.

We are building Generation 2015, a UK-wide group of young voters who will take part in local and national BBC programmes in the run up to the General Election in May.

You could find yourself on the One Show, Radio 1 Newsbeat, or Newsnight - in fact, anywhere across BBC output where the Election is being discussed.

Download the Generation 2015 application form here.

You can either print out and fill in the form by hand, or download it, enter your details and email as an attachment to

In either case, please remember to attach a head and shoulders photograph.

(You are unlikely to be able to complete the form on a smartphone or tablet-device - use a laptop or desktop computer with a PDF-viewer).

Print-outs should be posted to:

BBC Generation 2015, The Tun, 111 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, EH8 8PJ

Completed applications must reach the production team by midnight on Monday 2nd February.

The BBC wants to bring the broadest possible range of young voices to the heart of UK debate. We particularly want to hear from you if:

(a) you're from a community, area, or background that you believe isn't well enough represented by the BBC, or the media more generally.

(b) you've read this far and thought 'This sort of thing isn't for people like me. I'm not the 'type' they're after'.

We are looking for people from all walks of life, and every part of the country, from Cornwall to Shetland, and from Norwich to Armagh.

You don't have to have decided how you are going to vote. You do need to have something to say for yourself.
