Liz Warren Thinks the Federal Gov’t Should Mandate ‘Pre-Registering’ 16-Year-Olds to Vote – Opinion

You’ve got to hand it to the progressive wing of the Democrat party. When they put something in place in one of their deep-blue bastions, like Massachusetts or California, and other states aren’t so quick to buy what they’re selling, they’re like a German Shepherd with an oversized chew toy and can’t seem to let it go. That’s especially true on a topic like our nation’s elections and voting laws.

As an example, Senator Liz Warren (D.MA) along with one of the radical leftists she represents from Georgia are currently pushing an agenda item for the elections that they think would work well in all 50 states. They now claim that the federal government must force everyone to follow their scheme, just as mandatory COVID vaccines for military personnel.

A new Daily Caller News Foundation Report says:

The Youth Voting Rights Act was introduced by Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democratic Massachusetts, and Rep. Nikema Williams of Georgia. It would require all states to create pre-registration systems for voting in order to register 16- and-17-year-olds.

Under the mandate, every state will be forced to implement a process under which “individuals may apply to register to vote in elections for Federal office in the State at any time on or after the date on which the individual turns 16 years of age” to ensure they can vote as soon as they turn 18. …

The reason Warren and her cohorts want to do this isn’t out of the kindness of their hearts — to help the kids who might turn 18 close to election time take their civic duty seriously or make the registrations process easier to manage for the states’ election officials. Nope, it’s all about power and more votes for them.

….Democrats tend to have an advantage among younger voters. A 2022 Harvard Youth Poll found that 55% of potential voters favor Democratic leadership while 34% prefer Republican Leadership.

Like I said, Democrats derive their stupid and redundant ideas from the work they do within their respective states. This is happening already in the state of California, according to the secretary of state office’s website, which has a hip-looking, lower case title on the main page:

pre-register at 16. vote at 18.

The DCNF report adds that states could even make registration available “for minors who are younger than 16 years of age, and there is no minimum age requirement for pre-registration suggested within the bill.”
