Dear Prime Minister,
Congratulation! on your successful campaign in 2017. Our class has been discussing some of the key issues in your campaign. Sorry to say but we think you have missed one important issue in your debate. I strongly believe that the voting age should be decreased from 18 years to 16 years. I believe you hold the maturity of elected representation and can convince them to consider this proposal and make appropriate changes.
Without a doubt I believe that 16 years old should be allowed to vote because they can see the future ahead of us. I know some people will declare that 16 year olds are to politically uneducated but I certainly believe that 16 year old are more globally aware than generations before them. Unlike previous generation 16 years old are also better at using IT. This means they have better access to in formation.
I believe 16 year olds are should be allowed to vote. After All I hope that you take an action and make New Zealand a better place for people to live in.
