By the next presidential election in 2020, 16 and 17-year-olds could be voting in the Nation's Capital.

The last time the voting age was changed in this country was four decades ago. The Vietnam War was raging and students protested that it was unfair 18-year-old could be drafted but could not vote.

In 1971, Congress passed the 26th Amendment giving people 18 and older the right to vote.

It does not prevent states from setting a lower age.

If I was trying to change the world I would interject my opinion into every single thread like YOU do...

I deal more with reality as do the people around me.


The reality is the Nation's Capital may allow 16 and 17 year olds to vote for President in 2020.
