Bristol Youth Elections

Information for the Bristol Youth Elections and how to stand as a candidate.

In January 2022 young people in schools, colleges and youth centres across Bristol voted in the members of Bristol City Youth Council for a two year term of office.

How the Bristol Youth Vote 2022 works

For the youth vote, Bristol is divided into three areas North, South and East Central.

Each area will vote and elect their Bristol City Youth Council (BCYC) representatives.

They'll be elected for a two year term of office and represent young people’s views to adult decision makers, such as the Mayor, Councillors, Council Officers, Members of Parliament. They'll also influence policy decisions.
