Every two years, if you are aged between 11 and 19 (or up to age 25 with SEND), you can stand for or vote in the elections for the Young Essex Assembly.
It is there to represent all young people in Essex. Your views and opinions are important. We give young people a chance to have their voice heard, and work with decision makers to bring about change locally, county wide and nationally!
So what are you waiting for? Find out below how to stand or vote in this year's elections as well as who the candidates are for your part of Essex.
