ABC ME June 21, 2016

BREXIT
On the 23rd of June, the people of Britain will vote on whether or not they want to stay in the European Union.

It's a really important decision that will have a big impact on the rest on the world, including Australia.

We take a look at both sides of the debate and find out why many people around the world are watching the vote closely.

ROOKIE REPORTER - YOUTH VOTES:
This election will canvass the opinion of more young voters than any other in recent history.

1,658,085 young people aged 18 - 24 have enrolled this year - a record 86.7%.

But what could that mean for the results?

To find out, Rookie Reporter Maya met up with three of Australia's youngest voters and went out doorknocking with a candidate hoping to mobilise young voters in his quest for a seat.
