On July 1, 1971 the U.S. ratified the 26th amendment to the federal constitution, guaranteeing the right to vote to anyone of at least eighteen years of age. Forty four years later, some are advocating for the voting age to be lowered again — at least in some elections. On March 26, the Milwaukee County Board passed a resolution asking the Wisconsin Legislature to allow 16-year olds to vote in school board elections and to pre-register for municipal, state and federal elections. Supervisor Khalif Rainey represents Milwaukee County’s District 2 and authored the resolution.
