Voting for the UK Youth Parliament elections opens today!

If you’re aged 11-18 years old, this is your opportunity to vote for the candidate who you think will best represent you to bring about social change through meaningful representation and campaigning.

Elections for the Devon UK Youth Parliament got underway on 14 February and will close 3 March. You can vote at participating schools and youth centres. If your school or local youth centre isn’t registered as a polling station, please email to get a code that will allow you to vote online.

Check out the videos below to learn more about each of the candidates.

Meanwhile, Make Your Mark, the UK’s biggest consultation for 11-18s, is being run alongside the Devon UK Youth Parliament elections. Anybody voting in the Youth Parliament elections will also be asked to complete the Make Your Mark survey. But anyone who is not part of a school or youth group that’s registered as a polling station can complete the Make Your Mark survey online. Voting for Make Your Mark closes on 28 February.
