Back in May, we mentioned a Bill slinking its way through the House, to reduce the minimum voting age to 16, and it’s back in business. The Bill is summarised on Parliament’s website as, “A Bill to extend the franchise for parliamentary and other elections, and for referendums, to all citizens over the age of 16 years.”

The Bill had its second reading in the House of Lords on 25th October, so next up will be the Committee Stage, though a date for this stage has yet to be set. In the meantime, you can catch all the action so far, below:
