About/Media

Make it 16 was formed in July 2019 out of a group of young activists, both above and below the present voting age, seeking to lower the voting age in Aotearoa. Make it 16 is a non-partisan, youth-led campaign advocating for more people’s voices to count in our democracy.

We’re currently in the process of developing our campaign plans and establishing our governance arrangements – if you’d like to help, drop us a line!

Media inquiries can be directed to Dan Howard-Jones and Gina Dao-McLay, our National Spokespeople: makeit16nz@gmail.com
