I feel like there is a massive portion of the population who's voice is just being ignored, and this is their life too, their world as well.

I strongly believe in lowering the voting to 16, particularly for school board and community college board elections. As the President of Alianza, and immigrant rights organization (alianzadream.org) I firmly believe that students with immigrant parents give voice to the concerns of their immigrant parents

I think lowering the voting age could help with voter turn out.

I've heard this called a "second-look" issue. Even if there's a knee-jerk reaction against it, once the arguments are marshalled, the validity of extending the vote to 16-year-olds sinks in like common sense.

16 years olds are ready to vote. 16 year olds are directly and significantly impacted by the results of elections. 16 year olds should be able to grow up in a society that shows it values them.

Youth are going to save our elections. We just have to let them.

I believe that those who are directly impacted by public policies, such as school board decisions, local tax decisions, transportation spending decisions, et al., should have a voice in crafting those decisions.
