Make Your Mark - Get Set, GO! - Youth Parliament aims to break records in biggest ballot of youth views ever in the UK

 This week saw the launch of Make Your Mark, the UK Youth Parliament's annual ballot giving young people their say on what is debated by their Members of Youth Parliament (MYPs) in the House of Commons on 14th November.

The ballot will decide which five topics out of ten will be debated in the chamber by elected MYPs. The debate will be chaired by The Rt. Hon. John Bercow MP, Speaker of the House of Commons, recorded in Hansard and broadcast live on BBC Parliament. The Youth Parliament will choose its priority campaigns for the year ahead from this ballot.
Last year, the Make Your Mark ballot received a record 478,632 young people’s opinions, aged 11-18, making it the largest youth consultation of its kind in the UK. This year, MYPs have set themselves a target of getting 1,000,000 young people to take part.
