The right to vote should be extended to include 16 and 17 year olds in England, campaigners have said today.
The Electoral Reform Society (ERS) said not allowing young people to vote in England is a 'constitutional injustice'.
From today, 16 and 17 year olds will be allowed to vote in Wales for Senedd elections.
A spokesperson for the ERS said: 'Westminster now looks increasingly isolated for barring the UK’s nearly-1.5m 16 and 17 year olds from picking their MP.
'16 and 17 year olds can already vote in Scotland for all non-Westminster elections. A fairer franchise for the whole UK is now a matter of when, not if.'
