Lowering Voting Age Goes to the Oregon Senate


Giving 16 year olds in Oregon the right to register to vote is either a good move for democracy; or it's an invasion of their online privacy.  Proponents of a bill that will lower voter registration age to 16 say it’s important to get the youth interested in the politics of the state.  Like the DMV, the Secretary of State sells name lists to anyone with the money; but representative Tim Freeman hinted at the actual Republican objection: expanding registration to 16 year olds, could add more Democrats to the voting lists. The bill passed and goes to the Senate.
