Students Push To Lower Oregon Voting Age To 16

(Salem, OR)  --  A new bill making its way through the state legislature would lower the voting age in Oregon to 16.  Lawmakers and youth activists say if 16-year-olds can be tried as adults in criminal trials, they should be allowed to vote.  If the bill is approved, it will show up on 2020 ballots.  If voters choose to lower the voting age, Oregon will be the first state to have 16-year-old voters.
