Petition Make voting be required by law from the age of 16

Turnouts in elections/referendums can be low meaning there are people out there not represented by the governments we elect or by the choices made in referendums - make voting be required by law, where if you don't vote you are fined (unless exceptional circumstances) and lower the voting age to 16
