San Francisco could be first major American city to let 16-year-olds vote

San Francisco could be first major American city to let 16-year-olds voteSan Francisco could give children as young as 16 the right to vote in local elections if a landmark proposition passes in the US’s November elections. The proposition to lower the voting age by two years will be decided by the city's residents, who rejected the legislation when it was first proposed in 2016, according to NBC News. “Our motivation here first and foremost is to make sure that we put new voters in a position to establish that habit in the first election they're eligible for, and then to continue participating throughout their lives which is good for democracy on every level,” Vote 16 campaign manager, Brandon Klugman, told NBC News.
