Make Your Mark 2024

Youth Parliament's Make Your Mark ballot is an opportunity for young people aged 11 to 18 to have their say on issues which affect them.

In 2022 434,494 young people cast their vote on the biggest and most challenging issues facing this country, such as mental health support, employment, education and climate change.

  • SO WHAT? We think it's important that young people across Leicestershire get to have their say, since they cannot vote in elections
  • WHEN? Check the web link below. If you are a school, college or other youth provision, you need to register. It takes literally 3 minutes.

"Giving 11- 18-year-olds to have their say is important. Thousands cast votes on topics that they feel affected by and it's our responsibility to hear them. We encourage more schools to get involved and allow their students to have this opportunity. We hope future generations will actively take part in politics, and this initiative helps with giving them a reason to form opinions on political matters that involve them."
