Count Us In

Let's vote!

Vlogger and comedian Jamie Jay Carr has joined the Independent.ie 'Count Us In' campaign, encouraging young people to vote in the upcoming General Election.

He uploaded a video to his YouTube channel with the hashtag #CountUsIn, telling his fans that the young voters of the country need to "show them we actually care about voting!"

Beginning the video on a light-hearted note, he jokes "What people don't know about me is, my Dad is Michael Collins... See, I'm actually 94".

Carr has some serious advice to add for young people in 2016: "Let's go out and show everyone that us young people aren't all about tattoos and piercings, that we do actually give a feck about the country!"
