About Elections

Summary (optional)
Elections are a democratic process where citizens from the age of 16 elect political candidates to represent them, and their interests, locally and nationally. In 2021, changes to the voting franchise in Wales now allow 16 and 17 year olds to vote in the Senedd elections and Local elections, but not in the UK Parliamentary elections or Police and Crime Commissioner elections until they are 18. Foreign nationals resident in Wales are also allowed to vote in the Senedd and Local Elections.
