Put your views to good use
We all want to see positive change in Wales.
And while it’s pointless muttering at the dog about the litter in your street – and moaning into your laptop isn’t going to increase local job opportunities – there are plenty of positive things that you can do to make a difference.
From voting in the local council elections, responding to a consultation, to contacting your representatives and signing or starting a petition, there are lots of ways you can get involved. You could even stand for election to represent your community.
Vote in elections
More people can now vote in Welsh elections than ever before.
If you’re aged 16 or over, and you live in Wales, you can now vote in local council elections and Senedd (Welsh Parliament) elections.
The next local government elections will take place in May 2022.
You must register to be able to vote. Registration is simple, you can do this by using the UK Digital Registration service or by contacting your local registration office.
