Make Your Mark is an annual online ballot for 11 to 18-year olds. Voting gives young people a say on the issues that affect them – including food poverty, the climate emergency, and mental health. In 2019 over 1 million votes were cast. Voting will determine the Youth Parliament’s campaign priorities in 2021.
Members of the Youth Parliament will campaign to influence the UK Parliament and their local representatives, ensuring that the views of young people are listened to by decision-makers. The UK Youth Parliament is managed by the British Youth Council, a youth-led charity which aims to empower young people across the UK to have a say and be heard.
The website launched on 1 November 2020 as part of UK Parliament Week and votes can be cast until 30th of November. It’s time to begin your democratic journey!
