  • Responsibility without rights. 16 year old can get married and leave home. surely they have the maturity to put an X in a ballot paper.
  • youth interests are ignored as there is a lack of representation for them. under 18s are eligible to pay tax. this money goes to the government but they have no say on how it is spent.
  • it would increase young people's engagement in politics. only 37% of 18 to 34 year olds voted in 2010 - the lowest turnout for any
