Rep. Ayanna Pressley introduces bill to allow school children to vote in elections

Far-left Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley on Wednesday proposed an amendment to the election bill that would lower the voting age to 16.

“By lowering the federal voting age from 18 to 16 years of age, my amendment would enfranchise young Americans to help shape and form the policies that will set the course for our future,”squad” member Pressley said on the House floor.

“We must do right by the young organizers and activists who have fought for our democracy,” she said.

“They have a stake hold in our democracy and deserve to have a stake at the ballot box.”


Westernjournal.com reports: The majority of Pressley’s colleagues did not feel the same way, as the amendment failed 125-302, with all those voting in favor being her fellow Democrats.

The amendment would have been included in the HR 1 voting rights package, the so-called For the People Act, Fox News reported.

Progressive leaders support lowering the voting age in hopes of energizing and growing their voting base, as younger people tend to vote Democratic.

In the 2020 election, 65 percent of people ages 18 to 24 voted for President Joe Biden, and that favorable trend for Democrats shows no signs of stopping.

“All over the country, and in my district especially, we see young activists working tirelessly to make their voices heard — from battling climate change and gun violence to advocating for racial justice and economic equality,” Illinois Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowsky said in a news release about lowering the voting age.

Republicans have slammed the failed amendment and HR 1 as radical and compromising to election integrity.

“Now the majority of Democrat members voted to change the legal voting age to 16. Apparently they don’t think #HR1 — which would fund political campaigns with taxpayer dollars, legalize ballot harvesting, and nationalize our elections — is radical enough already,” Wisconsin Republican Rep. Scott Fitzgerald tweeted.

While young people have taken the lead in many progressive causes, including the Black Lives Matter movement and gun control, and, to a lesser extent, conservative causes, nobody under 18 should be allowed to vote.

This is mostly a matter of education and life experience. It is fair to say that the vast majority of 16-year-olds are not in a good position to make choices that would directly impact the country.

It is very important that teenagers get a proper civics education and even find different ways to get involved in politics if they are interested.

While it is safe to say that there are likely some 16-year-olds more educated about who to vote for than their older counterparts, clear boundaries need to be set.


  1. “As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they that lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.”

  2. The voting age should be instead raised to 25yo, to filter out the juvenile and violent impulses of Antifa and BLM and BAMN types.

    The “squad” is hopelessly worthless no matter what age they are because maturity will never resolve the extreme dishonesty of a Feminist.

    Rampant Democrat vote fraud makes all of these voting conditions irrelevant anyway.

    • Them feminazis all be men. MTF tran sgen ders. They hate real women and they hate real men. Its all a con to fool stupid women. Some men even lust after these temple prosititues – they are all over your screens.

  3. And by forcing them to have to attend compulsory curriculum programmed ” study ” they can brainwash them to vote exactly how they want And the kids will be too naive to see through the manipulations of their ” free will ” .. It will be done by experts at deceiving .
