Why do Exeter’s rugby boys think voting in the election matters?

We didn’t know so we asked


These chaps live for their sport and do everything for their team on game day. So what do they think about everyone coming together and stepping up to the plate come election day? We found out.

Joey, 2nd year studying Chemistry (plays fly half)


“Everyone should be allowed to decide for themselves whether they want to vote or not. But I’m proud to be British and I take pride in having a say, however small, in what we do in the future.”

It’s your country, it’s up to you. Register to vote here.

Darryl, 3rd year studying Music and Drama (he plays second row)


“I’ll be the first generation of my family to have the vote in Britain, and it’s going to be a big moment, not just for me, but for my parents to know I have the opportunity to play a role in our country’s democracy.”
