Voting for 16 year olds in the Manchester mayoral election
This petition had 8 supporters
This is the very first election of it's kind that, with the further devolution of powers, will effect everyone in Manchester. This includes the teenagers who will see the effects of this vote. The Scottish referendum allowed 16 yr Olds to vote and they had no problems. I know that the majority of people just in my college feel we should have the right to vote for who decides our future. There is no reason we should not be allowed to do so and I see no reason why our involvement would have a negative outcome on the election itself.
