Abstract

The debate on lowering the voting age has intensified in recent months, including in Parliament, as Democratic Audit posts this week by MPs Sarah Champion and Mark Harper have shown. In this post, Andrew Russell examines one of the arguments made by campaigners, that the voting age should be lowered to bring it in line with other rights 16 year olds enjoy, and finds that the evidence in support is far less clear cut than some proponents assume.
