This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition Hold a second referendum exclusively for 16 and 17-year olds.
The results of this second vote would be folded into the results of the general referendum.
Given that the outcome of the European Union referendum will impact the younger generations for decades to come, and that 16 and 17-years old were denied the right to have a say in spite of having to bear the economic and political brunt of this decision, we propose that a second referendum be held exclusively for them.
We also propose that the results of this second referendum be included with the results of the general referendum as a more accurate representation of the public will regarding membership of the E.U.
