Why the Greens want to lower the voting age

The leader of the Greens says lowering the voting age to 16 will allow young people to have a say on their future.

Under the proposal, teens aged between 16-18 would be able to enrol to vote in elections.

It wouldn’t be compulsory.

“It’s an opportunity to give young people a say if they want to,” Richard Di Natale told Tom Elliott.

He pointed out young people could work, pay tax and drive but not vote.
