What can I do to make sure this goes through?
There are three things you can do.
Firstly, you can send a message to your MP. The easiest way to do this is by going to theyworkforyou.com, entering your postcode to find the MP for your constituency, and then clicking “send a message”.
Make sure you use your own words otherwise the message may be considered spam.
The second thing to do is to sign the No10 petition here.
We have already collected hundreds of signatures, and the more we get, the more the government will be forced to listen.
The third thing is to share this page on social media.
Why support votes for those aged 16+?
Those aged 16 & 17 voted in the Scottish referendum where they engaged passionately with ~75% turnout.
The EU offers young people in the UK the opportunity to easily travel, study and work abroad. The outcome of the EU referendum will have a huge impact on their future.
This decision may not be reversed after the next election or even in our lifetimes so it’s vital those aged 16+ can have their say.
