In the United States, 17 year olds are granted the right to vote or caucus in presidential primaries in 21 states and the District of Columbia. In Takoma Park, Md., turnout among newly eligible 17-year-old voters was almost double that of the total electorate in November, 2013. And higher participation rates will persist because the act of voting is habit-forming; studies show that one of the biggest predictors of whether a voter will cast a ballot is simply whether that voter has done so before. So by simply lowering the voting age one year we can foster a whole new generation of active and engaged voters with healthy voting habits to last them a lifetime.
