A social media campaign is helping more young people understand Manx politics.

Youth Vote IM was set up to inspire teenagers to get involved in this year's general election.

In the run up to polling day on 23rd September, the group is encouraging people to get in touch with candidates via social media and question them about the issues that matter to them.

It is also providing useful resources on their website about the voting process.

Founders Archie Elliott and Oliver Sykes said the response has been very positive and they hope to see an increase in youth turnout at the polls.
