    Policy Lapse - Votes at 16 - Oct 17

      To join the Votes at 16 Coalition; 2. To write to the Leader of the Council, local MPs, local MSP’s and the local media to inform them of this decision and ask them to support the campaign; 3. To promote this policy through its communications; 4. To run activities to raise awareness of and support for Votes at 16 in the local area.

      Why you think it is important

      This policy was originally passed in October 2017

      Is there anything else you think we should know?

      I have read the guidance on what makes a good policy on the student council page

    3pm on 25 Nov 21 Will extending the franchise to 16 year olds actually improve the quality of the franchise and thus the quality of governance ? I am extremley sceptical that this will be the case.
