However, huge numbers of young people are now registering to vote. In just the first three days after the election announcement, 103,439 18-24-year-olds registered. And a further 99,106 25-34-year-olds also signed up.
And if they cast their ballots, they could have a massive impact on the outcome of the general election. Theresa May might be in store for a nasty surprise from young people in the UK.
