On May 5, all citizens of Wales will get the chance to vote for their representative in the National Assembly, which is like our parliament. Laws about things like health, education and the environment are all made in Wales by the Assembly.
Every year, around £16 billion is spent in Wales, on things that affect your life – like hospitals and schools. Decisions about these things are made here – in Wales, for Wales – but, in the 2011 Assembly election, fewer than half of us turned out to vote. So if you care at all about schools, hospitals, or our countryside, YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT VOTING ON MAY 5.
In order to vote though, you gotta be registered.

So be smart, son! REGISTER!
