Young people in Croydon are being urged to make their voices heard, by voting on the issues that are most important to them.

Make Your Mark is a Youth Parliament initiative which serves as the largest youth consultation in the UK.

The collected information guides the parliament's annual debate in the House of Commons, and sets members’ campaign priorities for the year ahead.

Croydon Youth Parliament representatives are aiming to find out the views of 6,000 11 to 18 year-olds in the borough, on issues such as the school curriculum, mental health services, the living wage, and euthanasia.

Paper ballots will circulate around schools and youth centres.

You can vote online by visiting:

The deadline for voting is October 3.
