Voting in the Youth Parliament elections gets underway
Young people across Devon aged 11-18 are being asked what matters most to them and who they want to represent those views on their behalf.
Elections for the Devon UK Youth Parliament are underway, with young people aged 11-18 voting for their preferred candidate in each of four constituencies across the county.
Young people can vote at participating schools and youth centres. And if their school or local youth centre isn’t registered as a polling station, they can email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a code that will allow them to vote online.
Voting will close on 3 March, with the new Youth Parliament team set to be announced by mid-March.
Young people are also being asked their views on the nation’s most pressing issues, in consultation running alongside Devon’s UK Youth Parliament elections.
The consultation, called Make Your Mark, and the discussions and topics coming from it, will also help shape the work of the Devon UK Youth Parliament team.
Voters to the Devon UK Youth Parliament elections will be asked to complete the Make Your Mark survey. But any young people who are not part of a school or youth group registered as a polling station can complete the Make Your Mark survey online. Voting is open until 28 February.
