Votes for 16 year olds

I don’t think 16 year olds should be allowed to vote, due to a number of reasons.

  • Not mature enough
  • Are not educated on politics 
  • Can be told who to vote for by parents and other adults

Why the contribution is important

The country needs to be run and governed by mature people who understand the world of politics and what each party, legislation, general election and referendum means for the country.

    @Matt_5558 - thanks very much for sharing your views on this discussion board! You explain that one of the reasons 16 year olds should not be allowed to vote is because they are not educated on politics. Would your view change if politics and citizenship education formed part of the school curriculum? If not, why?
