The Liberal Democrats in the UK have been advocating for a lower voting age since 2001.  Now it looks like the Labour Party will also endorse this policy, making the change much more likely to happen.

"School leavers could get increasingly political under possible plans drawn up by Labour to pledge to reduce the voting age to 16."

Check out these two articles from yesterday's Sunday Times, and Metro.
