Last year over 470,000 young people took part in a national ballot, Make YourMark.
This is the UK Youth Parliament’s annual ballot of 11-18 year olds, and thisyear we’re looking to get 1 million young people involved.
Run by young people, the UK Youth Parliament gives the chance for 11-18year-olds to use their voice in creative ways to change things that matter toyou – Make Your Mark is a massive part of this. Until 10th October we’re askingyoung people across the country what issues matter most to you. What you tell usdecides what is debated by the UK Youth Parliament in the House of Commons on14th November. Voting takes places both online and through ballot papers issuedin schools and youth centres.
Ten topics will be available to choose from on the initial Make Your Markballot paper, with the five most popular topics among young people going tobe discussed by MYPs in their November debate, chaired by the Speaker of theHouse of Commons, John Bercow MP, and broadcast live on the telly.
