Campaign To Increase Teenage Voting In Scilly

Sue Pritchard wants to encourage younger islanders to vote.

The Council’s administration officer will be sending all 18 year olds in Scilly a birthday card to remind them when they are eligible.

Councillor Richard McCarthy backed the idea but he said the choice of card or message would have to be considered and shouldn’t appear patronising.

Councillors agreed the plan as Sue reported that it will cost a minimal amount and will raise Council performance standards.
