Petition Allow the youth (14-17) to vote in larger elections/referendums
Big decisions affects them as well, and their future should be the prime concern at the heart of future referendums.
At the end of the day it is there futures on the line and it would be selfish to deny them a vote.
not letting them vote would be scandalous and would cause outrage among them.
This is backed up by the fact that YouGov's statistics said 18-24 year olds mostly voted to remain.
Young people are also told to voice their opinion and this would help them alot, whilst also introducing them to politics and wanting to contribute to society.
