The Washington D.C., City Council is preparing to vote on lowering the voting age for all elections to 16, according to the Associated Press.
The Washington, D.C., City Council is preparing to vote on a bill to lower the voting age to 16 for all elections, both local and federal.
WTOP-FM reports the bill won 3-0 approval in the Judiciary and Public Safety committee Thursday and will get a final vote before the full council this month.
The 26th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees citizens 18 and older the right to vote, but scholars have said it doesn’t prevent a state, or in this case, the nation’s capital, from setting a lower age.
Of course this only drives the popular vote in DC and won’t change the amount of electoral votes (DC offers 3 EC votes), however; this is just the beginning for the Democrats.
The Democrats have been pushing to lower the voting at to 16 because they know they can easily brainwash and influence the youth.
Youth are bombarded with anti-American, ultra left-wing propaganda in public schools and on social media so of course the Dems want them to vote.
The left will take this victory in Washington D.C. and push it in all 50 states.

And this needs to be spread everywhere and pounded home in these final days before elections.

Consider this the first of two gifts Donald Trump got this morning for next week’s midterm elections. The booming US economy added 250,000 jobs in October, well above expectations and a big jump from September’s revised sub-maintenance level of 118,000. Perhaps more importantly, wages jumped upward at the best pace since the start of the recovery in 2009:
Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 250,000 in October, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 3.7 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Job gains occurred in health care, in manufacturing, in construction, and in transportation and warehousing.
The unemployment rate remained at 3.7 percent in October, and the number of unemployed persons was little changed at 6.1 million. Over the year, the unemployment rate and the number of unemployed persons declined by 0.4 percentage point and 449,000, respectively. …
The average workweek for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls increased by 0.1 hour to 34.5 hours in October. In manufacturing, the workweek edged down by 0.1 hour to 40.8 hours, and overtime was unchanged at 3.5 hours. The average workweek for production and nonsupervisory employees on private nonfarm payrolls, at 33.7 hours, was unchanged over the month.
In October, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 5 cents to $27.30. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 83 cents, or 3.1 percent. Average hourly earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 7 cents to $22.89 in October
