Research shows that lowering the voting age has powerful effects on youth voter turnout and civic engagement. California can set a national precedent now by passing Assembly Constitutional Amendment (ACA) 8 this legislative cycle that would lower the voting age to 17 and promote early civic engagement.
If we take action today, we can ensure young people have a voice in our democratic process and change what's possible in our elections.
The CA Senate will be voting on ACA 8 very soon.
