OK, I admit, I haven't been following the upcoming referendum on Scottish Independence. If it's not about aliens trying to win Wimbledon by turning everyone into...oh, never mind. It just hasn't been on my radar.
Until now! Because they've extended the franchise for that election to 16 and 17 year-olds.
103 MSPs voted for the bill with 12 voting against it.Well, first Tacoma Park, and now this. One more, and we'll have a certified trend. Good for Scotland.
The legislation will allow 16 and 17 year olds to vote in next year's Scottish independence referendum.
Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the Scottish government had long wished to extend the referendum franchise and this bill was a "crucial first step towards next year's historic poll".
Labour MSP Patricia Ferguson said: "Scottish Labour strongly supports the principle of giving 16 and 17 year olds the vote and believes the right should be extended to all elections".
