In a bombshell article, presidential candidate Ralph Nader has come out strong in support of one of our most important goals: lowering the voting age to 16. Mr. Nader supported lowering the voting age from 21 to 18 during the Vietnam War, but he, like many other Americans young and old, doesn’t want to stop there. Mr. Nader recognizes the worth of young people and their value to America, and, like us, is tired of seeing them disenfranchised by the 18 voting age. With his courageous stance for youth suffrage, Ralph Nader joins a growing list of public servants advocating a lower voting age, including Dennis Kucinich, Cynthia McKinney, and more. “Much has been made of the youth vote this year amid evidence that more young people are turning out to vote in the primaries than ever before,” says Mr. Nader in the article. “Let’s take it to the next step.”
