LISTEN TO CHRIS LYNCH AND MARK DYE DISCUSS THE ISSUES WITH FRANCESCA RUDKIN ABOVE Young voters want civic education to be part of the high school curriculum. A University of Otago study reveals young people aged 18 to 24 are not catered for in the current voting system. Doctoral student Kyle Whitfield says 80 percent of those surveyed, suggested in every term, schools do a few hours of election or political education. He says young people want the knowledge to take part in a productive way, but often don't understand how the system works. Others, including Children's Commissioner Judge Andrew Becroft, have suggested lowering the voting age to 16.
