This is surely not a controversial issue anymore, 16 year olds can pay tax, fight in the army and start a family - they should have this democratic right.
The clincher for me though, is, it will stop the anomaly of people not getting the chance to vote in a general election until they are 23. This is important because the stats show there is a big drop in turnout between those who got to vote at 18 and those who got to vote at 23. This will help address that.
Please support this bill and hope MPs can get this through - if even this small change cannot become law, there is little hope for a new electoral system.
