The age to vote has been established for the upcoming plebiscite in Nain.
Sarah Leo is the AngajuKak for the Nain Inuit Community Government (NICG).
She says the NICG has decided that they will follow the age of voting used for Nunatsiavut elections.
Residents 16-years and older will be able to cast their vote on the plebiscite.
Caitlyn Baikie is the Vice-President of the Rising Youth Council of Nunatsiavut.
She says she is pleased with the news, but would like to see the age taken a step further.
Baikie believes the age to vote should be 8-years and up.
She says she has been looking over reports that were completed before the last plebiscite in the early 2000s.
The reports detail the effect that drinking has had on many community members.
Included in those reports are testimonies from children.
The children talked about the effect that drinking had on their lives.
Baikie believes that these children should have a say on whether or not Nain should be a dry community.
Nain residents will cast their vote on the plebiscite on August 16.
