Pelosi Supports Lowering Voting Age to 16

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she supports lowering the voting age to 16. At a press conference Thursday, the California Democrat claimed she has always been for the reduced voting age—“I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school,” she said. Even if said kids don’t know the first thing about what they’re doing. Pelosi did add that’s her personal opinion, not necessarily the position of House Dems.
