straitstimes.com -- Oct 18
Japanese celebrities are appealing to the young to vote in the general election on Oct 31, amid apathy towards a government branded as out of touch on bread-and-butter issues.
The Voice Project: Your Vote Is Your Voice campaign was launched on Saturday (Oct 16) as an "independent project created by ordinary citizens" with no political affiliation.
