AYAC National Director Leo Fieldgrass will be a guest on Channel 7’s Weekend Sunrise this Saturday morning, 27 September.
As part of a live broadcast from Melbourne’s Federation Square, Leo will talk about lowering Australia’s voting age to include 16 and 17 year olds.The segment is scheduled for 07.20am (AEST).
Since 2009, AYAC has advocated for lowering the voting age as part of electoral reform to engage young people in the political process http://www.ayac.org.au/uploads/AYAC%20Submission%20-%20Electoral%20Reform.pdf
We’re pleased that the topic has come up again after the successful engagement of 16- and 17-year-old voters in the recent Scottish referendum on independence from the UK.
