All this week elections are being held in five separate secondary schools throughout the district. Pupils have the opportunity to select the candidates they feel would be the best to represent them and their school on The Youth Council and to provide a voice for them on current local issues affecting young people.

The schools holding elections include Chigwell School on 29 September, Braeside independent and Debden Park High on 30 September, Roding Valley School, Loughton and St John`s School, Epping on 2 October 2009.

Votes will be counted by Officers from Epping Forest District Council. Results of the successful elected 25 candidates are due to be announced at the meeting of the Council`s Cabinet on 12 October 2009 and will be made available on the Council website. This will be followed by a formal welcome reception at the Civic Offices, Epping, on 19 October 2009. Youth Councillors will have the opportunity to be introduced to each other as well as all the current District Councillors.

A two-day induction period has been organised for the new Youth Council on 28 and 29 October 2009 to support them whilst settling into their new role.
