We are a group of high schoolers along with a passionate Westfield, NJ Councilman who
believe that 16 and 17-year-olds should have a right to vote in local elections. We have
the right to drive, the right to work, the obligation to pay income taxes
and we even have the right to register to vote at 17. But we can’t vote until 18. This
doesn’t make sense to us. And we need you to change help us change this in NJ.
How do we go about doing this?
We need support from teens like YOU around New Jersey. We must show state lawmakers that we are intelligent, civically engaged individuals who will use the right to vote to better future elections. Therefore, we need as much support and action taken from different schools around the state to demonstrate support. It doesn't matter if you're a Republican, Democrat, or independent. We need to lower the voting age for the representation of all teens across the state!
