Pupils vote on ‘mayor issue’ in mock referendum

Pupils at Castle Vale School are today holding a referendum.Every pupil in the school will be given a ballot form and will cast their vote on the issue: Should Birmingham Council be run by a mayor elected by the public, as London is?
It’s a mock election designed to raise pupils’ awareness of the issue that will be facing Birmingham at the polling stations on 3rd May.
Birmingham is one of ten cities in the UK that will be having a mayoral referendum on that day.
Polls suggest that many voters are not aware of the issue.
