Good Luck.
European leaders tried a new way to win votes. They used rap to get young people to vote them. More and more young people are losing interest elections. The number young people who vote has gone down the past ten years. The number was 87 per cent but the last election, it was just 65 per cent. Younger politicians made a group called EU40. They said rap would get their message to young Europeans. They took part "a freestyle hip-hop battle" April the 9th the European Parliament. It was called the "Battle For Your Vote". The organizers said: "The aim is getting young voters interested European politics and thus increasing young people's votes the upcoming elections."

The European elections are May. Europeans must choose 751 new politicians. The BBC reported how the battle started. It wrote: "MEPs [Members the European Parliament] were given the microphone a minute to try and drum some pre-election support. The conservative European People's Party tried to appeal the young crowd saying, 'If you like money, vote the EPP'. And then the battle commenced." The politicians made short raps many topics. The topics that were most popular were youth unemployment and immigration. Each rapper told the audience what they would do about these problems. They used short, rhyming sentences instead the usual long speeches.
