Vote 16 Research Network

The Vote 16 Research Network is a community led effort convened by the University of Maryland to learn more about what happens when communities lower the voting age to 16 in the United States. This effort brings together young people directly impacted by the policy, the local government officials who implement it, educators who teach students about politics, and scholars who study these issues to learn and grow together! This will be the first impact analysis of lowering the voting age in the US.
