Democracy For America

Sign the petition: Lower the voting age

On issues from gun violence, to immigration reform, to climate change, young people are organizing, mobilizing and calling on our country to take action.

They are at the forefront of social and legislative movements and have earned true inclusion in our democracy.

That's why Ayanna Pressley introduced an amendment to the historic For the People Act that would lower the voting age from 18 to 16 in federal elections, allowing the young people who are on the front lines of some of our most existential crises to fully participate in our democracy.

Will you join DFA and stand with Ayanna Pressley in her effort to welcome new, younger voters into our democracy?
