Welcome to your vote week

Welcome to Your Vote Week 2023 aims to start a conversation about democracy and politics, especially with the young people around you, so everyone can feel confident to take part.

That’s why this year’s theme is ‘our democracy’, highlighting that democracy is for everyone, and takes place all around us.

We are encouraging schools and youth groups to join in, as well as young people themselves so they can find out all about what their vote means, so they can use it when it when the time comes!

So getting involved in conversations about democracy, learning about how it works, and how your vote influences decisions made about your life needs to be an important part of our lives.

Take a look at this video to find out more about democracy in Wales:
