I am John and today I have decided to start my new blog, Next Ballot Box. The idea of this blog is to educate young people about politics and try and get them to vote. This blog will be full of news, videos and interviews with politicians or important figures.
The reason I decided to start my blog is because I feel that young people should become more involved in politics and take more of an interest.
This evening, former Labour Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls agreed to let me interview him, so keep your eyes peeled for my interview with him and many more people who I hope to interview in the future.
I hope you enjoy my blog and keep an eye out for my interviews.
All the best
