Lower the Voting Age to 16

This petition had 7 supporters

We believe that states, counties, and municipalities should follow in the footsteps of Brazil, Argentina, Scotland, Austria, and Estonia and allow for 16-year-olds to vote in state, county, and municipal elections. We believe that a government which affects the lives of its citizens ought to be led by those it affects; thus, youth, who are affected by a plethora of policy choices and will see the most long-term effects of government decisions, ought to have a voice in the ballot box.
