The next government will be charged with planning B.C.’s way through the pandemic and beyond, tackling issues like the economy, health care, employment, education and climate change. 16 and 17 year olds are impacted every day by government decisions. And just like other citizens, they deserve a say in what lies ahead.
We need to lower the voting age in B.C. Ask your candidate to become a champion for youth.
At one point or another politicians from all three major B.C. parties – the BC NDP, the BC Green Party and the BC Liberals – have supported lowering the voting age.
Last year, at both BC Green and the BC NDP conventions, members voted unanimously to support lowering the voting age. In 2011, several BC Liberal leadership contenders declared support for the idea.
Now where do they stand?
