New York Congresswoman Grace Meng, a Democrat is reintroducing legislation in the House calling for lowering the voting age to 16.
Meng’s proposed measure would replace the 26th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution with a new amendment that would allow 16 and 17 year olds to vote.
Speaking to PIX11 News, Meng said “young people have been leading the fight and literally their lives are at risk, their future is at risk.”
“They should have a say in who they elect in this country,” she added.
