Exercise4. Here are the main arguments put forward in the Votes at 16 Debate.

Which views support lowering the voting age?

Which views argue against a change in the law?

Tick the opinions you agree with.

Would you change the voting age?

 
16 year olds in 2004 are more mature than an average 16 year old in 1967 when the voting age was decided. They have more experience of life.  

 

 

 

 

 
When young people are learning about politics at school it is natural for them to want to vote at the end of it.  

 

 

 
 
A move to lower the voting age is not in line with the rest of Europe. In all other European countries they can vote at 18. We shouldn't be different.  
 
 
The internet and the large number of TV channels we have now have changed the amount of information we get. Young people today see far more news and have information programmes made especially for them. They are better informed about government, the Economy and the World.  
 

 

People at 16 are still very self-absorbed and not very interested in their rights or their responsibilities. They are much more mature at 18 and ready to think about the way their country works.

Oh, dear, I can’t (on Friday). But another time perhaps?

I’m afraid I’m busy then. Can’t you make it another day/time?

I’m sorry but I can’t (tomorrow). Does Tuesday suit you?

I’m afraid (Friday’s) a bit difficult. What about another day?

 

 

f) How to persist with an invitation to try to persuade others to change their minds:
