YOUNGSTERS in the Vale have the chance to win an iPad.

Vale of Glamorgan residents - aged between 14 and 17 years old - can win an Apple iPad by successfully registering to vote ahead of the May election.

The prize draw closes on April 19, which is also the deadline for registrations to be able to vote in the Senedd election on May 6.

Although, at the moment you have to be 16+ to vote in the Senedd elections, you can register to vote from the age of 14 in Wales.

There are five gold Apple iPads (2020) with 32GB up for grabs, with the free prize draw open to all 14-17 year olds in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Entrants must have permission from a parent or guardian aged 18 and over to enter, with a maximum of one entry per person.

The winners will be randomly selected and notified after May 28 via the contact details provided when applying.

Winners will be e-mailed up to two times and phoned up to three times - if a winner doesn't respond within 14 days of the second e-mail they may lose their prize and a new winner may be chosen.
