Zurich would have been only the second canton after Glarus to lower the voting age from 18 to 16. However, those entitled to vote obviously followed the arguments of the SVP and FDP: For them, this demand was a sign of an “excessive zeitgeist”.

They found that allowing minors to vote would make democratic decisions less credible. The FDP and SVP also doubted that the lower voting age would really promote political interest.
