Consultation on the Draft Referendum Franchise (Scotland) Bill

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

We welcome the opportunity to respond to the consultation on extending the right of 16 and 17 years olds to vote in the Independence referendum. CELCIS is the Centre for Excellence for Looked after Children in Scotland based at the University of Strathclyde. Together with partners, we are working to improve the lives of all looked after children in Scotland. We are keen to ensure as set out in your accompanying documents that all 16 and 17 year olds will have their new electoral rights realised; the inclusion of looked after young people will require additional and tailored efforts.
