Scotland's Young Voters - 6 May 2014
Dropping the voting age to 16 was lauded as a nationalist masterstroke in the battle for Scottish independence, but evidence is mounting that teenage voters may prove hesitant about breaking away from the United Kingdom. Ahead of a September 18 independence referendum, the British government's campaign to keep the 307-year-old union with Scotland intact is battling to hold on to a shrinking poll lead over nationalists, who say a split would give Scotland the freedom to create a fairer and more prosperous nation.

Scottish country dancer Mairie McGillivray,16, dances on the beach at Bridgend as she poses for a photograph on the Hebridean island of Islay, March 11, 2014. Mairie will vote "yes" in the referendum and said, "I believe that Scotland isn't governed by democratic means due to our lack of representation in Westminster and that we would be better off as an independent nation, both culturally and financially." When Scotland's nationalist government dropped the voting age to 16 for this year's referendum on independence, it was widely seen as banking on teenage radicalism to ensure a break with the United Kingdom. If so, it may have miscalculated. Two opinion polls and Reuters interviews with 25 Scottish teenagers in 10 different locations suggest the ruling Scottish National Party (SNP) can't be sure of their support in the Sept. 18 referendum. Overall, polls show Scots remain doubtful about separation, although the proportion of those supporting independence has increased over the past year. Picture taken March 11, 2014.
