One thing I found of particular interest was individuals under the age of 21 we classified as “youth votes”. It rather bothered me, truth be told. If 18 years of age is good enough for city, state and national elections (and registering for the draft which would theoretically— if not in reality— result in some of these youths being sent to fight for their country) why are these individuals not classified as adults? So I emailed David Rivel (of the City Parks Foundation, which conducted this process) to ask why.
And here’s his answer.
So there have you.
P.S.: Only 699 responses?!? God that’s pathetic.
