Today is the last day you're able to register to vote in the upcoming election. Listen to Charlotte Church and do it. Now.

Charlotte Church has posted a video urging people to register to vote for the upcoming general election on 8 June.

Midnight tonight (22 May) is the deadline for registration, with Church pointing out that "One of the demographics that votes least is women aged 18 to 30."

In the video, which you can watch above, the singer also speaks extensively about the crucial future of the NHS, which hangs in the balance this election.

She says: "If the Tories get in again our NHS will be systematically dismantled and sold off, Theresa May has said she wouldn't rule out a trade deal with Trump, we'd be selling off parts of our NHS to American private companies, and the way that's headed is into private healthcare and insurance."

Registering to vote takes only a few minutes and can be done here.
