Local Council Elections 2024

Let's get Volt elected locally in Malta!
Volt Malta's getting ready to participate in the Local Council Elections of 2024, and with your help, it can impact as many localities as possible.
With your support we can grow a fantastic team of candidates and with a strong manifesto and take on the Local Council elections due June 2024.
We'll develop a manifesto based on best-practice solutions and adapt them to the needs of the locality to address their residents' most pressing issues.

Elected Volters at local level across Europe
Throughout Europe, Volt Europa has been elected in several local and regional Governments, taking roles both in opposition and in Governing coalitions.
You can find Volt councillors representing citizens in several cities across Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal and The Netherlands. Some cities with elected Volters include Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and Rome.
By being part of a Pan-European party, Volt councillors across Europe can easily collaborate, share best-practice ideas and find solutions to common problems.
Check out some of their achievements below!
- Student housing: Organised an expert session with student participation, housing associations and the municipality of Amsterdam on the current problems with student housing, the opportunities in building and the current stock.

- Opening of the European Affairs Office: It provides citizens, organisations and the local administration with opportunities, training and support needed to identify, apply and complete EU projects.
- Accessibility to Schools for Kids: Enhances children’s civic and ecological culture, by allowing them to walk the last stretch to school safely. During opening and closing school hours, vehicles can’t access roads to schools. The initiative has been so successful, it is being adopted by other municipalities.

- Proud to Be Young Festival (PTBY): Co-organised with the town's high school students two big events where young people were the absolute protagonists. PTBY is the first Festival where young people of Isernia have the chance to express themselves through music, dance, art, and poetry. The first edition saw the direct and indirect participation of more than 500 young people and high school students.
- Youth Forum: We drafted and approved the "Youth Forum Rule Book" that sets the basis for the creation of the Youth Forum: a mechanism that allows young people between 15 and 29 years old who live in Isernia to make, among other things, active proposals on the Municipality's youth policies and events.
- "Free therapy for high school students": We won around €20.000 to implement a project that allows high school students to have three free therapy sessions in high school.
- "Creation of a Dog Fitness Area": We supported the creation of the first dog fitness area in our hometown.
