YES! I want B.C. to lower the voting age to 16. I pledge to be a future voter who will hold elected politicians accountable.

How many future voters does it take to make a politician take action?

We are about to find out…

Political parties say they care about youth and our future, but when it comes down to it, they mostly think about votes.

The problem is, 16 and 17 year olds aren’t voters in this election. But they can register to vote in the future.

Young people are the ones who will be the most impacted by the success or failure of the pandemic recovery and choices on climate action, but they’re not given a say at the ballot box. Let’s change that.

This election, lowering the voting age needs to be in all political parties’ platforms. And once elected, we will hold them accountable to their promise. That means youth signing up to vote in the future, and keeping an eye on politicians’ next moves in the Legislature.

Why register to vote?

  • Political parties will know young people are serious – and if they don’t follow through on their promises, they will lose votes the next time around. We will be watching and waiting.
  • A large wave of young voter registrations proves youth are enthusiastic and willing participants in democracy – that you are mature enough and eager to participate.
  • Get it and forget it. When you are eligible to vote, you’ll be all set and can easily cast your ballot the next time around. As we’ve seen, snap elections can happen anytime!

Right now, voter registration is closed for the rest of the election. But don’t let that slow you down! When it opens after October 24, we will send you all the info you need to sign up.
