Plea For Second Referendum For Younger Voters

This petition had 110 supporters

As you will probably know, on June 23rd Britain voted to leave the EU. This will have catastrophic effects on the younger generation in particular, greatly damaging the housing and job market in this country and possibly raising the cost of tuition even higher. Figures show that it was mostly the age range of 65+ that voted to leave, with the younger voters (18-24) choosing to remain. This decision will affect younger voters a lot more than the older ones, so I am calling for a second referendum allowing 16 and 17 year olds to vote as well. At the beginning of the campaign, this was seen as a possibility; which shows that it could happen. This is our future and we do not want it decided by pensioners who have already lived majority of their life inside the EU.
