*Please be aware that you must fill out your details at the bottom of the screen before you can complete this one minute survey*

Vernon is a big supporter of reducing the voting age to 16. He recently voted in favour of allowing 16 and 17 year olds to vote in the upcoming EU referendum. This matter is still to be decided in Parliament and Vernon is very keen to find out whether Gedling constituents are in favour of, or opposed to, reducing the voting age. Have your say below!

Are you in favour of reducing the voting age to 16?

This would allow 16 and 17 year olds to vote in local, national and international (European Parliament) elections, as well as in referenda.
