An in-depth overview of the Senedd’s unique voting system, the subjects we’re responsible for, and updated information on the recent changes to who can vote. 



Delivered through the medium of English

Webinar aim

To introduce participants to the Senedd’s unique voting system and share information on the recent changes to who can vote, including 16 and 17 years old’s who will be able to vote for the very first time. The session will also aim to give an in-depth overview of the work of the Senedd, it’s Members and how citizens and organisations can influence the decisions that are made there.  

Following this session, we hope that participants will be able to confidently discuss matters around the election with their own stakeholders and partners, and resources will be available to share for that purpose.  


Learning Outcomes

By the end of the webinar participants will have had the opportunity to discuss: 

  • The upcoming election on 06 May 2021 – who is eligible to vote, how to register and the ways in which citizens can vote;  
  • How the voting system in Wales works: what the role of the Welsh Parliament is, and what it has responsibilities for,  
  • The role of Members of the Senedd and how the Welsh Government is held to account; and  
  • The ways in which citizens can continue to be involved in the Senedd’s work after the election, and have their say.  


Who the session is for

This session will be of particular interest for those who work with citizens directly within their projects and voluntary sector organisations, who may seek further information on some or all aspects of the upcoming Welsh election, including the voter / voting process. Resources on accessing this information will be available to all those who participate in the session to share with citizens and other staff members.  

This session is also open to all those interested in developing an understanding of politics and devolution in Wales, and want to know more about how they engage and influence the decision-making process.
