When it comes to voting for a new leader, some people vote for a candidate based on their policies. Policies are plans that a candidate will put into action if they are chosen by voters. For example, some candidates might say they will focus on the environment but others might have policies that make healthcare or schools a priority.
However, some people think that a candidate's personality is just as important as their policies.
We want to know what you think about this!
