Cardiff and Vale Green Party

 

The Welsh Government wants to know your views on proposed changes to local government elections in Wales.

Full details here:

https://consultations.gov.wales/consultations/electoral-reform-local-government-wales

2 of the most important proposals are:

  • Lowering the voting age to 16 (Question 1)
  • Allowing councils to move away from First Past The Post (FPTP) to a more representative Single Transferable Vote (STV) system (Questions 13 and 14)

The STV proposal is weak because councils would not be required to use STV – only allowed to choose to use it.

The consultation closes on 10th October

So to make a difference you must
email in your completed form by then!

The response form here has suggested responses to questions 1, 13 and 14 filled in. Feel free to use these, and to add, amend or delete parts as you wish. You don’t have to respond to the other questions on the form, but of course you can if you want to.

Return your completed form by email to:
