Today is the last official day that you can register to vote in the UK for the December 12 general election.
Over the weekend the government website saw more than 300,000 people, 200,000 of those being under the age of 35, making it one of the largest surges in voter registration in UK history.
With less than 24 hours to register, Twitter is awash with people encouraging those that have not yet filled in the very simple online form to do so immediately.

One man though has remained quiet on the issue and that man is the prime minister, Boris Johnson.
Since the election was confirmed, Johnson has not once tweeted about registering to vote, nor has he shared the link to the official government website.
In fact, the only tweet we could find where he asked anyone to register for anything was when he was running to become the leader of the Conservatives.
