Petition Give all 16 and 17 year olds the vote in referenda that affect their future
In the June 2016 referendum on whether to remain in the UK, 16 and 17 year old citizens have been denied a say on this important question, yet will endure its consequences for the next 60 to 70 years. Their fate has been decided by older people who have less at stake. This is morally wrong.
