Rights Mission

This year, 16 and 17-year olds will be able to vote for the first time in Wales.

But we want more young people to be able to get involved, so we’re running a parallel Senedd election designed for young people aged 11-15.

Young people taking part through their school vote for the actual candidates in their school’s constituency and region, learning more about the political process and how elections work.

We have also prepared lesson plans and online events for young people to learn more about elections and voting.

Your Rights Mission is to take part in Project Vote 2021. Schools and other settings can sign up to receive their e-ballot and download lesson plans at
