About the Senedd Election

The law in Wales has changed - 14 -16 year olds and qualifying foreign nationals living in Wales can now register to vote.

  • By registering to vote, a young person can now take part in Senedd elections from the age of 16
  • By registering to vote, a foreign citizen aged 16 or over, can now take part in Senedd election

If you are not already registered to vote you can register online.

The Senedd Election will allow voters to elect 60 members to The Senedd (formerly the National Assembly for Wales)

It will be the first election in which 16 and 17 year olds and legally resident foreign nationals are allowed to vote in Wales, the largest extension of the franchise in Wales since 1969. Both changes were a result of the Senedd and Elections (Wales) Act 2020.

FAQ's

Are the elections on 6 May being postponed?

The elections are scheduled to go ahead as planned on 6 May. We are working hard to ensure that they can proceed effectively, including that polling stations will be safe places to vote.

Who makes the decision to postpone the elections?

Any decision to postpone the Senedd election would be for the Senedd. The Welsh Government is currently preparing a bill which would enable the elections to be postponed by up to six months, if necessary. Any decision to postpone the Police and Crime Commissioner election would be for the UK Government to make, and be subject to parliamentary approval.

Do you think they can go ahead in the current circumstances?

The Electoral Commission has developed a set of election objectives with the UK’s governments, political parties and electoral administrators, to ensure the elections can be delivered safely and successfully.

We are working with the UK’s governments, the Electoral Commission, the wider electoral community and public health authorities to ensure that voters can cast their votes safely at the elections on 6 May 2021.

These preparations allow for a range of restriction levels in May.

We are also putting arrangements in place to help ensure polling stations are safe places to vote. Voters can expect many of the measures they’ve become used to over recent months, such as the use of hand sanitiser, floor markings and face coverings.
