Lower the Voting Age to Sixteen

This petition had 245 supporters

Young people in the UK are getting more and more interested in politics. Votes are taken in parliament by MP's on their behalf, yet they have no say in who their MP is. Even worse, they pay taxes and national insurance contributions yet have no representation. This needs to change.

Ruth George is our local MP in the high peak and she wants to be able to go to Parliament with signatures from her constituency backing this motion.

We want all residents of High Peak to sign this petition if they believe that young people who pay taxes, join the armed forces and die for their country, should be able to vote.
