When they can vote, 16 and 17 year olds have higher rates of turnout than 18 to 24 year-olds – with 75% voting and 97% saying they would vote in future elections. They accessed more information from a wider variety of sources than any other age group.

Extend the vote to 16 and 17 year olds in all future UK elections.
Young people – particularly those of school age – are leading the fight against climate change.
They’re taking to the streets to demand a better future for themselves and their peers.
These young people are among the most creative, energetic and politically focused citizens in the UK right now, and yet . . . they’re denied a vote, excluded from the franchise, barred from democracy.
We are calling on the Government to include 16 and 17 year olds in all future UK elections.
let's modernise democracy
Help us build a fairer country.
