Have your say

West Sussex recorded its highest number of youth voters in county elections this year.

In March, 23,275 young people at 81 schools and youth organisations throughout the county voted in the West Sussex youth cabinet elections and UK youth parliament elections.

And more than half of those organisations were eligible to receive a democracy award, meaning more than half of their members voted.
