Over 1.5 million 16 and 17 year olds are currently denied the vote in the UK.

For years we have wanted the opportunity to have
our say. Now the case for lowering the voting age
is stronger than ever. So let’s make ourselves heard!

Take part in Votes at 16 Action Week (5 to 11 March) and add your name to the e-petition calling for the voting age to be lowered to 16 for all public elections in the UK.

supporters and counting!
