Lowering the voting age is an idea whose time has come. Serious proposals from the United Kingdom to Massachusetts to California have started discussion on the voting age and NYRA is getting involved with it. NYRA chapters in New York and California are joining groups around the country working actively to lower the voting age. NYRA has created this resource for all people and groups interested in the issue. Read our top 10 reasons to lower the age, check out our voting age talking points, and read some great research on the subject by Keith Mandell and Ben O’Meara. This is a good page to check back with for updates on the fight to lower the voting age in our voting age news section. If you do any research or writing on the topic of lowering the voting age NYRA would love to add it to our collection, so please upload your paper here.
