GET TO KNOW US

We are a non-partisan, youth-led campaign advocating for more people’s voices to count in our democracy. We believe in allowing 16 and 17 year olds to vote will create a fairer and stronger democracy for Aotearoa.

Our campaign started in 2019 as a product of Youth Parliament and has now expanded to a national network of people passionate about extending the voting age.

“As a parent of a 16 year old, I know my young person has the capacity and will to express views on the type of world they want to live in. I think we all can benefit from listening to the questions our young people want answered and to their hopes and aspirations."
