Vote's at 16

Our idea at Red and Gold newspaper is to allow voting at 16.

Why the contribution is important

We think that at Red and Gold Newspaper that it's the younger people that have to grow up with the voting decision. We are high school children and believe that voting as young as sutitable would be amazing, and benefitial to the future of our world. If places like Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua and the Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey can have voting at 16 we believe that this should be validated in the UK and anywhere else possible.

    Thanks for sharing your views on the discussion board @DaisyJ - Specifically, in terms of political and citizenship education - what do you think is the best way for this to be taught? Does it need to be taught before a young person should be allowed to vote?
