Votes At 16

EDM number 882 in 2017-19, proposed by Layla Moran on 31/01/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Elections, Electoral franchise and National Assembly for Wales.

That this House welcomes proposals by the Welsh Government to lower the voting age to 16 in order to allow 16 and 17-year olds to vote in council elections in Wales; believes that this will increase political engagement and participation among young people as has already been demonstrated in Scotland; and calls on the Government to allow all 16 and 17-year olds across the UK to vote in all local, regional and national elections and referendums.

This motion has been signed by a total of 32 MPs.
