Polling stations

All secondary schools and youth organisations working with 11 – 18 years olds can register as a polling station for the elections. Polling stations can decide how they want to carry out the elections and we will provide information and case studies on what has worked well before. Polling stations can register to carry out the election online or via a paper ballot. We will deliver all election materials including manifesto posters and ballot papers the week before the election and then collect completed ballots from you on Monday 21 November 2016, when the elections have finished.

We can also deliver workshops to school councils to encourage young people to get involved in the elections, if you are interested please email

Registration for candidates, representatives and polling stations has now closed.
