Another Voice for a Lower Voting Age

April 28, 2009

While you’ll hear a lot about big names supporting a lower voting age, from Michael Moore

to Nelson Mandela.  But the most important supporters of a lower voting age are ordinary people, and especially young people themselves!

Here is a brand new youtube video from Tracy Chacon, a youth intern with Albuquerque’s Southwest Organizing Project
Her arguments are based on fairness: teens work and pay taxes; they should have the right to vote for their own interests!
I will post more videos from young people themselves in support of a lower voting age! And I encourage everyone to record a youtube video argument your point of view!
