Wales could become the second UK country to allow 16-year-olds the right to vote, if assembly allow it…

The Welsh Government has made plans to modernise elections, and they are hoping to lower the voting age to be able to vote in the 2022 elections.

The changes would also give non-UK citizens living legally in Wales the right to vote.

Cabinet Secretary Alun Davies told BBC Wales’ Sunday Politics Show: ‘I think everybody who pays taxes should be able to vote.’

The plans will need to be accepted and passed by Welsh assembly.
