Estonia: Coalition to lower voting age in European Parliament elections

Estonia’s ruling coalition plans to lower the country’s voting age in all elections to 16 years, ERR reports. The coalition has agreed on cutting the minimum voting age in elections to the European Parliament. Under the plan, teenagers would be able to vote in European elections in 2029. The coalition parties want to cut the voting age in elections to the Estonian parliament, the Riigikogu, to 16 as well, which would require a constitutional amendment. The age limit already applies to local government elections.
