NR election poll results declared

Voters cared about the environment
When the election was called in April, Newsround hit the road to find out which issues were important to kids.

We gave you 10 choices. More than 3,000 of you voted and it turned out that you cared most about the environment.

Kids filled out ballot papers at each stop on the NR tour, which took in many parts of the UK.

In addition, they could vote here on the Newsround website and loads of kids taking part in the Y Vote mock elections voted online too.

Kids across the UK took part in the vote

A total of 549 of you said tackling environment issues - such as global warming and recycling - would be your top priority.

Crime was your second biggest issue, with 501 votes. You were concerned about vandalism, drugs and knives and theft.

Stress

Schools came a close third, polling 498 of your votes. The issues you would address included dealing with exam stress and bullying.

Voters cared least about transport issues, such as better bus and train services and safer cycle routes. Just 79 of you named this as your top priority.
