Should 16 year olds have the vote?
However you can't deny that a sizeable percentage of the internet population voted Brexit for bants too. Does that make their vote not count?
Isn't democracy truly choice? even uninformed ones?
hmm, do expand on that?
bearing in mind, a 16 year old is legally not allowed to drink, can own a provisional license, but not drive fully. And cannot be conscripted to war.
if a 16 year can vote? then why not say 15? too
It's exactly what you just said that makes me think they shouldn't. However, there is a reason one particular party constantly pushes for votes under 16, and we all know why - younger people are easily impressionable. Plus you made a good point, why cut it off at 16 when it could be 15 - What's the difference?
However. This one debate will be held by the conservatives on Monday.
So, in hindsight, what do you think about raising the voting age?
I think it’s best just to leave it at age 18 as a cap.
More needs to be done to increase the turnout among 18-22 year olds and then maybe we can think about going lower. At age 16 me and many others didn’t care much about political parties and elections.
Of course there are some politically active 16 year olds
