#Vote16 #YoungPeople and Politics

Having attended the Assemble the Youth Conference in July 2015, we were thrilled to receive the invite to National Voter Registration Day #NVRD #Wales2016 # 5thFeb. The aim of the afternoon hosted by the Assembly, was to engage young people and encourage voter registration. They certainly had no problems with the 7 great young people from Neath Port Talbot who attended! Check out Catrin speaking to the BBC …. https://twitter.com/BBCWalesNews/status/695630034409644033
