Welsh Assembly Voting will occur on Thursday 5th May 2016 in the Village Hall

The National Assembly for Wales represents all of the people in Wales.

The Elections are held in 40 Assembly constituencies and 5 Assembly regions across Wales. This results in the election of 60 Assembly Members overall.

In Ynys Mon 1 Assembly Member (AM) is elected. In addition, 4 Regional Members for the North Wales Electoral Region are elected to represent North Wales as a whole.
