Proposal would allow DC 16-year-olds to vote for president in 2016
WASHINGTON - When Americans go to the polls to vote in 2016, there's a chance that 16-year-olds in Washington, D.C. could also be casting their ballots. On Tuesday, three D.C. City Council members proposed lowering the federal voting age in D.C. from 18 to 16.
If the legislation passes, D.C. wouldn't be the first to lower the voting age. In Tacoma Park, Md., the minimum age to vote in municipal elections is 16.
But is 16 too young? We want to hear from you. Post your comments on our FOX 5 DC Facebook page, and we might share yours on air.
