How many people nationally registered to vote in the last week? 

In Milton Keynes, over two constituencies, there were 1500 late registrations for the vote.

Almost all came in the last few days, after the First Leaders Debate.

The word is most of these are young first-time voters.

I wonder what might have prompted this surge?

How are other parts of the country doing in terms of late registrations? Milton Keynes does have a high proportion of young residents so it might not translate out pro rate UK wide... if it did it implies over 400,000 more voters on the rolls than this time last week.
