Cast your vote for the next Leeds Children’s Mayor


This year, children and young people in Leeds will be electing their 15th Children’s Mayor! As usual, hundreds of children wrote down manifesto ideas in schools which were whittled down to finalists that were submitted by 50 local primary schools.  A panel of children and young people then had the difficult job of choosing the 12 strongest entries to make it through to the election stage and it’s now up to the children and young people in Leeds to do the most difficult task of all – voting for the winner!

Anyone aged 18 or under can vote and they are encouraged to read our fantastic final twelve manifestos online at  and then vote for their two favourite entries! Voting will be open from 9am on Monday 23rd July until 5pm on Wednesday 19th September
