Welcome to your Vote week

The elections on 6 May 2021 in Scotland and Wales will be the first opportunity many young people will have to vote.

To provide schools with a focus point for political literacy and encourage registration amongst young people, Welcome to Your Vote week will take place from 22 to 28 February 2021 in Scotland and Wales.

Resources and support are available to teachers and educators to help them deliver political literacy sessions to young people who will be eligible to vote, including our new Welcome to Your Vote learning resources.

You can also download social media graphics and other resources to raise awareness amongst the young people you work with.
