Make Your Mark 2019 Launch

On 23 August 2019, the UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) will launch their Make Your Mark ballot for young people across the UK. In Wales, this is facilitated by Children in Wales’ participation initiative, Young Wales.

Organisations throughout Wales will receive their electronic resources pack on Friday afternoon, allowing them to distribute the ballots.

The ballot allows young people to choose their national campaigns for 2019, and decide what they want to debate when the UKYP has their annual sitting in November at the House of Commons.

Through youth forums and councils, youth organisations, schools, colleges and online, the ballot will provide an opportunity for young people to participate in democracy, telling their elected Members of Youth Parliament what’s important to them.

Last year, over 1.1 million young people took part in the ballot last year across the UK, with a record number of ballots returned in Wales; 54,079.

For more information about the ballot, please visit the UKYP website.
