Summary: Youth voters are chronically underrepresented in the voting population. At 17, many Californians are earning income on which they can be taxed, and facing life choices which can be severely affected by the decisions of elected officials. ACA8 lowers the minimum voting age to 17 years old in California. This proposed amendment has passed the Assembly but has not been considered by the Senate.
