Heath Park students have been voting as part of the Wolverhampton Youth Elections this week bringing to life Democracy and British Values. The UK Youth Parliament (UKYP) provides opportunities for 11-18 year olds to encourage young people in their local area to make a difference on issues that matter to them. Students voted for the two candidates they believed would represent them locally and in the House of Commons. The Engagement Team from Wolverhampton City Council volunteered to act as Poll Clerks, giving authenticity to the whole process with students expected to vote privately and posting in a ballot box.
Alongside this, students also voted in the British Youth Council’s ‘Mark Your Mark’ referendum. The national campaign asked students to vote on the some of the biggest issues faced by young people such as the Covid 19 recovery plan, better mental health education, climate change, jobs, money and homes. The top three issues chosen by young people natioanlly will be the focus for the newly elected Youth MP for Wolverhampton.
