  1. Thyra Morgan UNITED KINGDOM

    Sixteen is too young to vote

  2. Patricia Bibby UNITED KINGDOM

    I think a bit of life experience is required to vote on most things. School pupils are likely to be influenced by their tutors which may not be a good thing.

  3. Steffanie Procter UNITED KINGDOM

    16 yr olds are not sufficiently wise enough to take part in such an important reforendum

  4. Steffanie Procter UNITED KINGDOM

    I do not approve of 16 yr olds voting on such important matters as they are far too young

  5. graham williams UNITED KINGDOM

    Lowering the voting age might distort the result of any future referendum. Younger people are not mature enough to have a balanced view on the issues.

  6. Jeanne Lewthwaite

    I don’t think 16 year olds are responsible enough to vote.


    I think the minimum voting age should stay at 18yrs old.

  8. Margaret Langstaff UNITED KINGDOM

    Youths of 17 and even 18 are too young to make life changing decisions.

  9. Alasdair Mawson UNITED KINGDOM

    17 year olds are not old enough to make long term decisions.

  10. Margaret Langstaff UNITED KINGDOM

    This age group are certainly not old enough to make life changing decisions.

  11. Margaret Langstaff UNITED KINGDOM

    17 is not old enough to make life changing decisions.

  12. J. Douglass UNITED KINGDOM

    Until young people have had experience of proper job for at least a year they are too vulnerable to influence from interested parties.

  13. Alasdair Mawson UNITED KINGDOM

    I don’t believe 17 year olds are old enough to make life changing commitments.

  14. margaret eales UNITED KINGDOM


  15. Ben Butterfield UNITED KINGDOM

    Sixteen is too young.

  16. Gladys sandiford

    the age of majority is 18 and one should be an adult to vote

  17. Geoffrey Atack

    My memory of when I was a teenager is that a was not qualified at that age to make a decision of such importance concerning the future of the country. Teenagers in general are not politically minded and are not mature enough to understand the implications that are involved in the result of this referendum.

  18. Emily Doreen

    18 years of age is still too young but this is not the question, under this age never in a million years.

  19. Dr M Roberts UNITED KINGDOM

    At 17-years-old, a young person has not made any significant financial contribution to the running of the State through taxation or national insurance. At such time that they do make a contribution, this will have a bearing on their decision making. In other words, it will (should?) provide them with a more meaningful/sensible perspective.

  20. Harry Towers

    Life experience would be lacking in many cases. Influence of the British Educational System has moulded their views.
