This is how the British electoral map would look if only 18-24s were allowed to vote
The British electoral map would be bathed in a red hue if only 18-24 year-olds were allowed to vote, new research has revealed.
According to polling data carried out between 28th and 29th August 2018 Labour would take a massive 600 seats from the youngest voters if there was a General Election tomorrow.
The Conservatives would be left without any seats with the Liberal Democrats taking 21, the SNP taking nine seats and the Greens hanging on to their single seat.
The data highlights the popularity of leader Jeremy Corbyn among young voters, after he galvanised a once dormant voting group in the 2017 General Election.

According to the Ipsos Mori How Britain Voted survey following the General Election under-45s came out in force for Labour while over-54s voted in greater proportions for the Conservatives than in 2015.
Almost two-thirds of those aged 18-24 voting for Jeremy Corbyn’s party, while 61 per cent of over-64s voted Conservative.
