The voting age is currently 18 and we want to lower the voting age to 16 because it is our futures that are going to change and we believe we should be able to help change our future.We will do this by starting a petition in hope that we will gain enough signatures to send this of to somebody in power.

We believe that voting at 16 can inspire young people to get involved in our democracy. Votes at 16 will engage 16 and 17 year olds, who hold many responsibilities in our society, to influence key decisions that affect their live and ensure youth issue are represented. Votes at 16 will empower 16 and 17 Year olds, through a democratic right, to Influence decisions that will define their future.

What can 16 year olds do?
⦁ Leave school, Join the armed forces
⦁ Pay income tax and national insurance

Now we want those who agree with us and are for voting at 16 to sign the petition. Our goal is to reach 100 signatures/signs.
