SACRAMENTO, Calif. — California may join many other states in allowing 17-year-olds to vote in primary and special elections, if they will turn 18 before the following general election, under a proposed amendment to the state constitution approved Thursday by the state Assembly.
If two-thirds of senators agree, the measure would to go to voters for their consideration in California’s March primary election, but it would not affect next year’s elections.
The measure passed, 57-13, over objections from Republican Assemblyman James Gallagher of Nicolaus that it’s a ploy to lure more Democratic-leaning young voters.
The measure “is being veiled as something that helps expand the franchise” but “has mostly a more political ulterior motive in the long term,” Gallagher said. “That’s what is really going on here.”
Democratic Assemblyman Kevin Mullin of San Francisco said the practice has been adopted in other states that lean Republican, and the goal of his measure is to “empower California’s youngest voters” and encourage a habit of life-long voting.
