Younger People Are Interested in Voting – But Should They Be Allowed?Christiana Crossen
Voting for a public election is a major event in the UK, and only takes place every few years. The legal age to be eligible to vote in England is 18, while several other countries across the world have either lobbied for or passed laws to lower the required age to 16.
We wanted to know the younger generation’s opinion on the vote to see if they would take the opportunity if it came their way. So, we went around the North Kent College campus to gather people’s thoughts and opinions on the college’s mock election that’s set to take place during the same week as the actual General Election on December 12th.
