Young British Voters Explain Why They’re Voting To Stay In The European Union

Britain is just one day away from voting on whether to quit the EU in a national referendum, with polls suggesting the result is on a knife-edge. Britain is the EU’s second-largest economy, has a powerful military and exerts outsize influence in global affairs. It would be hard to interpret “Brexit” as anything other than abandonment of the EU by one of its most important members.

Especially young voters are afraid what a so-called “Brexit” would mean for their future – and the future of their kids. Would it be harder to travel to other European countries? Would it be harder to find jobs inside and outside of Great Britain? Can the local economy bear such a huge change – or would the Britons find themselves back in the 70s and 80s?

The people over at VICE News met young British voters who explained to them why they’re voting to stay in the European Union tomorrow and how they will be affected by the vote. They don’t want their country to be Europe’s lone wolf. Great Britain could become the first nation to leave the EU. The nation is split on its vote, and in the run-up to voting day, opinion polls remain close.
