Are we ready for the 16-year old vote?

Some teenagers are very ready and they took their case to the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education. The members of the school board listened and knew what was good for them: they voted to move ahead with researching whether they could expand eligibility to vote in school district elections to 16 and 17 year olds.

That's how it starts ... organizing for the unimaginable, which becomes, after struggle, commonplace. Way to go!

Frankly, I don’t know yet if I’m ready to allow 16 year olds to vote, though I’ve certainly known some more knowledgeable about issues than many older voters. I’ll have to cogitate on this.
