Teens quizzed on lower voting age
Sixteen-year-olds may be able to vote in future elections if Guernsey's States agree.

The House Committee is asking for the opinions of 15 to 18-year-olds ahead of a debate on the issue in October.

A survey asks if they believe the age should be reduced and, if it was, how likely they would be to take part in future elections.

The Isle of Man gave 16-year-olds the vote in May sparking calls for Guernsey to drop the voting age.
