Are you old enough to vote at 16?

In several countries across Europe, citizens aged 16 and 17 are deemed mature enough to pay taxes and marry, join the army, and face criminal charges, but not to choose the government that is going to represent them. Only Austria and Estonia are recognising the right to vote at 16 as a key element of participation in democratic processes. How can we promote the Votes@16 campaign?

Join this discussion to share good and bad practices in different member states and initiate a discussion around this burning issue.
