Should We Say YES to Prop 18?

Should We Say YES to Prop 18?

Voting is coming up in a month, and that means we get to vote for who will be President. Now, as you know, people who are 18 and up get to vote. But, what if 17-year-olds could vote? This is where Prop 18 comes in. It states that eligible 17-year-olds who will be 18 in the next general election (in 2024) can vote in the primary and special elections. In my opinion, saying YES will let new people and ideas into the politics scene. I’m assuming that most seniors are not heavily involved in politics and are going to be 17 this year; I’m one of the few who are going to be 18 this year and am involved in politics. It would be interesting to hear ideas high school seniors have about politics. Also, young people have been keeping the democracy alive. High school students have been leaders in some political movements. So, why not let them participate in the vote? Whether you are voting or not this year, tell people to vote YES to Prop 18.
