From November 2014 – June 2015 we went to schools, colleges, universities and youth groups all across Wales to create a national conversation about young people’s thoughts on lowering the voting age. Use the links below to find out more about what we did and what people said:
Our consultation called ‘Vote@16?’ gave young people the opportunity to tell us their thoughts on a variety of voting topics including: how they would like to vote, best ways to learn about politics, awareness of voter registration and do they think the voting age should be lowered to 16.
More than 10,000 young people responded to our consultation. Thank you to all of the young people for taking part!
