One News reports:
In the latest 1 NEWS Colmar Brunton poll, New Zealanders were asked, ‘Do you think the voting age should be reduced to 16?’
Only 13 per cent said yes while the vast majority (85 per cent) said no. The rest don’t know.
So lowering the voting age is almost the most unpopular thing you can propose.
National leader Judith Collins says she doesn’t think it needs to be lowered, while Labour leader Jacinda Ardern says she “wouldn’t rule it out in the future”.
In the future could be in 2022!
