"If Australia trusts our 16 and 17 year old citizens to pay tax and work; to join the military; to drive on our roads; to fly a plane; to make independent decisions about their medical care.
Then we - the Parliament of Australia - should extend that trust to include a direct, empowered say in our democracy.”
In 1973 the voting age change from 21 to 18. It is time we change it once more.
The young people of Australia are yearning for a parliament that represents them and Labor wants to deliver.
