Take Note... We Want To Vote: Lowering the Voting Age to 16

"Take Note...We Want To Vote" is a campaign that aims to lower the minimum age for public electoral voting from 18 to 16.

16 year olds are allowed to:
◦Consume alcohol
◦Engage in sexual relationships
◦Leave school to work
◦Pay National Insurance
◦Join the armed forces and die for their country

But they are unable to chose who sends them there. They cannot speak out about issues that are of concern to them, and by the time they turn 18, they will speak about the problems they face as 18 year olds. The voices of 16 year olds are being unheard.

This Has To Change!
