A pledge to give 16 and 17-year-olds the vote in general elections will be in the next Labour manifesto, Ed Miliband has promised.
The opposition leader said politicians had to address a 'crisis in our democracy' and involving young people more was a 'really important part of that'.
He said seeing young people's engagement in the Scottish independence referendum had convinced him it was "the right thing to do" to extend the voting franchise.
He told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "We're going to have it at general elections, it's the right thing to do, alongside proper education about our democracy."
