Children at a school in the Scottish Borders have been learning about politics by hosting their own election.
Channelkirk Primary School pupils made up their own parties and policies, before voting for a winner.
Teachers hoped the experience would engage the youngsters with the political process.
Lori Carnochan finds out why some people in the South of Scotland are choosing not to vote this May.
Kate Walby finds out why some Cumbrians won't be exercising their right to vote next month.
In the latest of our series of school election debates we've been hearing the views of young people ahead of the general election. Tim Backshall has been to the Borders to look at what impact the Scottish referendum has had on teenagers and whether it will make them more or less likely to vote in May.
The group includes some young people who were old enough to vote at the referendum, but still won't be able to vote in the general election. Hear their views on that and the issues that are important to them.
At the 2010 General Election voter turnout was 65% - if you were, or might be, one of the 35%, we want to know why.
We're looking to interview people who feel disengaged with politics, and don't plan to vote at the General Election.

The Liberal Democrat peer, Baroness Williams, was in Kendal last night where she defended her party's record in government. She said the party hadn't known just how bad the economic situation was when it initially promised to scrap tuition fees. And she said she didn't believe the Lib Dems would do as badly at the election as the polls suggest.
