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.'
