Votes at 16


The EU Referendum Bill will pave the way for a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU and yet the Government has not proposed any extension in the election franchise to allow 16 year-olds the right to vote.

16 year-olds are eligible to join the armed forces, get married and pay income tax but yet don't have the right to vote.
