Vote 16 BC Campaign
At our May 19, 2020, regular meeting VDLC delegates voted to endorse the #Vote16BC campaign to extend voting rights to sixteen and seventeen year olds.
As the #Vote16BC petition says, sixteen and seventeen years olds are involved and participating in politics in many ways, but are unable to cast their vote. Many countries around the world, such as Scotland and Austria, have lowered their voting age to 16.
You can support the campaign by signing the petition at #Vote16BC Campaign Petition
You will also find a poster which can be printed and posted to union bulletin boards or other locations #Vote16BC Poster
Thank you for supporting this campaign.
