Young Scots reflect on Referendum

As you will know, Scotland voted on it’s future independence in a referendum recently, with the result being that the majority decided against.

The referendum was the first time that the vote had been extended to those aged 16 & 17 rather than 18 as in other elections. I went out and spoke to some young people who had just voted for the first time to get some reactions to the process and made a video for The Guardian which you can watch if you click through the link below.

The photographs above are from George Square on the eve of the vote when mostly Yes campaigners took over the square for some festivities.
