With one day to go before the General Election, The Star has been out and about asking voters what the big issues are for them.

Star reporter Emily Smith took to the streets to ask people if they think voting in the upcoming election is important.

Sam Webber, a 23-year-old Sheffield student, said he's voting because it makes a difference.

"People don't believe it matters, but if everyone voted - especially young people - it would show an accurate representation of our values."

Janice Dore, 29, a nurse from Sheffield, said: "You can't complain if you don't vote and then an outcome you didn't want happens, because the opportunity was there."

Carol Knock, 70, retired from Chesterfield, said this is the first election in her life that she felt like spoiling the ballot.

"I think we should vote, especially women, because I owe it to the people that died. I think it's a privilege. I just wish we were better informed."

Carol believes people are voting off false information, and that parties aren't debating topics in an all-rounded way.

However, not all members of the public agree that voting is important.

Arwa Seev, 35, unemployed from Sheffield, said: "We're told we have to vote, so we think we do. I haven't seen any change in the way things are ran."

Polling stations will be open from 7am until 10pm tomorrow.
