Lower the Voting Age to 16 years old in Northern Ireland.

We want the Northern Ireland Government to Lower the Voting Age to 16 years old. Young people deserve to have their voices heard in matters that affect them!

Why is this important?

Young people do not feel supported by our government and want to have their voices heard. They can have a job, marry with a family and join political parties but cannot vote in any Northern Ireland election. Only 54.71% of people voted in the NI elections in 2019. Young people did not have this opportunity and want to be involved.
Wales and Scotland involve and recognise how valuable young people's voices are in elections and it is it time we do to!
