Get ready to vote - 16 and 17 year olds will be able to vote for the first time.

September is getting closer and in the upcoming referendum 16 and 17 year olds will be able to vote for the first time.   It is important that young people are prepared to cast their vote by being registered to vote by 2 September.  Learners should also be encouraged to think critically about the information they are reading and hearing, and advice on how to enable them can be found in theCurriculum for Excellence briefing paper no. 14.  Education Scotland’s Political Literacy website contains a wealth of resources which can be used to equip young people for their participation in a democratic society.
