We know that people who start voting young tend to become voters for life. By including youth in the democratic process earlier, we can take a giant step towards a healthier democracy.
It flies in the face of fairness that 16 and 17-year olds are old enough to work — and pay taxes — while not being allowed to vote for the government those taxes are funding. Elizabeth May and the Green Party strongly believe that our youth deserve better.
Add your name now in support of Elizabeth May’s bill to lower the voting age to 16. Our youth are our future. They deserve the right to help shape it.
