Extending the vote to 16 & 17 year olds – Have your say!

The Welsh Government has recently announced an existing shake up of Council Elections. Under proposals set out in the consultation, 16 & 17 year olds in Wales would be given the right to vote in Council Elections and electronic voting could be used in future elections. The proposals are designed to make it easier to vote and easier to be entitled to vote in the future. These include electronic voting at polling stations and
remotely such as mobiles phones and voting at other places such as supermarkets.If you are a young person and want to have your say on this important issue, please visit: https://consultations.gov.wales/con sultations/electoral-reform-localgovernment-wales
