Gower AM Rebecca Evans is reminding local young people aged between 11 and 18 to register and vote in the Welsh Youth Parliament elections.
A total of 40 seats are up for grabs with 480 young people standing as candidates, including 10 in Gower. A full list of candidates and their information can be found here -https://www.youthparliament.wales/gower
Voters must register to take part, and more than thirteen thousand 11-18 year olds across Wales have already signed up. It is not too late to register and vote - you just need an email address your postcode, and you will be asked for your date of birth.

Once elected, Welsh Youth Parliament Members will serve a two-year term.
Another 20 young people will be selected to join the parliament by associated organisations including the Urdd, Girlguiding Cymru and Learning Disability Wales.
Rebecca Evans AM said, “It takes a lot of courage to put yourself forward, and I am wishing all our candidates standing in Gower the very best.
“I have had the pleasure of speaking to some of them about the things they would like to focus on if they are elected, and have shared some of my own experience.
"I would urge anyone who is eligible and hasn't yet registered to vote to visit the Welsh Youth Parliament website to find out who is standing for election in our area and how they intend to represent you."
