Give young people the chance to have a voice and and impact on the issues which affect them.

Why is this idea important?

16 year olds can leave school, work full time, pay tax and join the armed forces. If they form an important part of society, they should also be able to have a say on how that society functions.

This would also create an interest in politics in young people which has been long lost.

If 16 year-olds are treated as adults in court, they should also be treated as adults at the ballot box.
