Four youngsters are preparing to battle it out to become Hyndburn's Youth MP and represent the area in local and national politics.
The winning candidate, selected by children aged 11-18 will become the area's representative in the UK Youth Parliament as well as being a member of both Hyndburn and Lancashire Youth Council.
Hardeep Sidhum 16, is studying A-levels at Accrington Academy and says his main priorities are bullying, drug and alcohol abuse and sex and relationship education.
He said: "There should be more things for young people to do to keep them off the streets where there's peer pressure to bet involved in things they don't want to.
"And we've had the highest teenage pregnancy rate in Europe before so I want to have more sex education on STIs and contraception."
Hamza Jahanzeb, 18, is studying A-levels at Clitheroe Grammar School and says he is passionate about transport and cyber bullying.
He said: "I want young people to have cheap transport for educational purposes especially since the government scrapped the EMA."
Matt Southwood, 15, who is doing his GCSEs at Mount Carmel high School also wants to address drug and alcohol abuse and sex and relationship education.
He said: "Round here you see people getting drunk or high for the sake of it and that's not a good way to be."
And Hannah Fielding who is in year 9 at Norden High School wants to tackle racism, bullying and abuse.
In her manifesto she says: "I feel it is time the Hyndburn Youth Council had a female member and a Norden pupil with a higher role."
Hannah was unfortunately ill when we recorded the candidates' video messages.
The elections are organised by Lancashire Young People's Service and will be held on Tuesday, February 21 from 6pm to 9pm at the town hall.
At the same time there will be elections to executive positions on Lancashire Youth Council.
