NDP leader Adrian Dix has a new idea to get more young people voting.
He says he plans to table a bill on Monday to allow teens to register to vote at a younger age.
He says the voting age of 18 would stay the same, but kids could start simply registering to cast a ballot starting at 16 years old.
"Just a practical change that will ensure young people -- we take away some of the barriers to young people voting."
He says the Chief Electoral Officer in BC recommended this two years ago.
