UK Youth Parliament Elections - update
Many thanks to everyone who has supported pupils to stand as candidates in the upcoming Youth Parliament by elections. We have had an overwhelming response and have 20 young people standing.
We wondered if you would now be able to promote the upcoming elections to the rest of your student population – any 11-18 year olds are eligible to vote via a text voting process – and encourage them to read the Candidate’s addresses here: https://youthsupportteam.co.uk/election/.
Voting will take place from the 12th - 16th October – please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive a downloadable poster that you can print and share on any digital platforms that you may have.
It is also that Make Your Mark time of the year. Make Your Mark is the UKs largest Youth Consultation and it would be amazing if the voice of Gloucestershire’s young people were represented better than ever this year. The ballot will take place from Sunday 1st November
Schools can find out more and register here to receive all the resources you would require to enable young people to take part: https://www.byc.org.uk/uk/uk-youth-parliament/make-your-mark
