During a debate in the House of Lords, Baroness Smith of Basildon said she had changed her mind on the issue after speaking to young people.
The former Labour cabinet minister said: "It's really a nonsense that young people of 16 can go out to work, pay taxes, join the armed forces, have children, but they can't have a stake in their own future when it comes to choosing an MP, their government or their local council."

"The government understands the impact a national road project like the A14 can have on air quality, and that is why a full environmental assessment will be completed before any work happens."
The region's MPs have spoken of their opposition to the government's plan to upgrade the A14 during a Westminster Hall debate.
Suffolk Coastal's Therese Coffey and Ipswich MP Ben Gummer are among those to have raised objections so far.
