Voting Age: 16

  I beleive that the voting age should be lowered to 16 as it gives more people a say in how their country is run and will determine their futures.  However, voters of the age of 16 must be shown how to vote and be taught about the political world in school.

Why the contribution is important

  Because you said that the government wanted it

    Thanks very much for sharing your view @jakey - if pupils are taught about politics and citizenship in schools, what type of topics or themes should be covered?

    Do you ahve any thoughts on how a young person who does not receive their education in a traditional school setting (for example if they are home schooled) can be taught about politics and citizenship?
