About the Youth Voting programme

Youth Voting gives young people aged 11-15 years (school years 7-10) the opportunity to experience an election first hand.

Students learn about Auckland Council, why voting is important and how voting works.

At the end of the programme, they vote for real candidates on real issues. They then see how their results compare to the official election results.
