Let youth register to vote at 17.

    1. Petition by

      MASSACHUSETTS VOTER EDUCATION

Some people say young people don't vote.  But in the last presidential election, four out of five 18-24s who were registered turned out to vote.  That's an impressive number.  The problem?  Only 58% of 18-24s year-olds are registered, and, of course, no one can vote who isn't registered.  Many states have increased the number of young people who are registered by allowing young people to register as soon as they turn 17.  It's a simple step that saves money (fewer last minute registrations means less work for elections officials) and helps people vote.  It's time for pre-registration to become the law of the land in Massachusetts.
