They might go into a school- like ours and into a little booth like these.

In our country there are two main kinds of election.
Local and national elections.
Local elections are for representatives on local and parish councils.
Local councils deal with housing, rubbish collection, schools, sports centres, care for those who need support and other local services.
Local councillors can be anyone over 21.
They go to meetings and make decisions for those in their local community.
Sometimes the people who voted for them agree with their decisions and sometimes they don’t.
The other kind of elections we have are national elections.
