Malta OKs 16-year-old voters
VALLETTA, Malta (AP) — Lawmakers in Malta have unanimously approved
constitutional amendments lowering the minimum voting age for general
elections and national referendums to 16.
The Maltese Parliament’s approval on Monday night makes Malta the
second European country after Austria to give 16-year-olds the right to
vote in national contests. They have been able to vote in City Council
elections since 2015.
Maltese citizens still need to be at least 18 years old to be candidates in national elections.
