Petition Give all UK Residents with NI number a vote. No taxation without representation.
At 16 someone can legally leave school, get a job and pay tax. But they are denied a vote in General Elections on how that tax is spent.
The same is true for hard-working UK residents without UK citizenship.
To address this iniquity give everyone with a National Insurance number a vote.
Current eligibility rules for voting in General Election (Electoral Commission)
