Arizona has become the latest state to consider lowering the voting
age. State legislator Ed Ableser introduced a bill to amend the
Arizona State Constitution to lower the voting age to 16 state wide.
While only the minority party, there are signs that the Arizona
Democratic Party would support this bill that would legally
enfranchise Arizona’s teens.
We are making progress. There was a time, when such a proposal in and
of itself would have been considered impossible. And there will be a
time when such a proposal will pass and become a reality. Those of you
who live in Arizona call up your state legislators and ask them to
support HCR 2010. The voting age is within grasp.
