Scottish referendum: Youngest voters have their say
The Union of England and Scotland have been in effect since 1707, when the two separate countries joined together to form Great Britain.
This will be the first time that 16- and 17-year-olds will be given a right to vote in a UK election. This series of photographs by Craig Easton show young people of Scotland born on September 18 at home all around the country.
They will celebrate their 16th birthdays on the day of the referendum and so will be the youngest people to cast their ballot.
