Reviews the case 'Make It 16 v Attorney-General' [2020] NZHC 2630 which considered the constitutional issue of compatibility of the minimum voting age provisions in New Zealand's electoral legislation with the equality guarantee in the Bill of Rights Act. Argues that the judge's conclusion that a provision of the Bill of Rights Act can potentially infringe another provision of the same statute is mistaken. Discusses the reasoning behind the judgment and argues that it could have been achieved in a better way.
