LaMonte' Patterson

My name is LaMonte Patterson the "lad" refered to in the above article.
Extending voting rights to 17 year olds would increase youth engagement through particpation. In 2008 there were over 4 million 17 year olds. That year young people had the lowest voting rates (counting all elections) because they qere not prepared for participation. This policy ensures that more young people are on the voter rolls and prepared to participate in primaries and general elections.
