Introduced on Aug 15. The bill reduces the voting age in local elections and polls from 18 to 16 years of age. It establishes a new category of electors, named youth electors, and provides for 16-year-olds and 17-year-olds to be registered on a youth electoral roll. It does not change the age for voting, being elected or appointed as a member of an alcohol licensing trust or trustee of a community trust or serving as a juror. First reading on Aug 29 and sent to the justice committee with National and Act opposed.
