Well done to Esther from Surrey who won the Votes at 16 prize draw for an iPod touch!

Over 500 people entered the draw whilst signing up to support votes at 16.

Esther, Votes at 16 prize draw winnerEsther, 15, (pictured) told us: “I support Votes at 16 because I believe it to be unjust that one can join the army at 16 and yet cannot have the vote. Also, lowering the voting age would offer an excellent opportunity for teenagers to get more involved with the politics of our country at an earlier. I found out about the campaign from a teacher at school and then got more involved”.
