Massachusetts bill would allow 16 and 17-year-olds to vote in city and town elections



Lawmakers on Beacon Hill will be discussing a bill this week that would make it easier for cities and towns in Massachusetts to allow 16 and 17-year-olds to vote in local elections.

On Wednesday at 1:00 p.m., the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Election Laws is scheduled to have a hearing on a bill that would allow “every citizen 16 or 17 years of age, who is a resident in the city or town where he or she claims the right to vote at the time he or she registers, may have his or her name entered on the list of voters in a city or town and may vote in any election for officers in such city or town.”

The bill appears to have strong support.

    This is a backdoor attempt by liberals to lower the age of sexual consent. These socialist animals will stop at nothing in their attempts to steal the innocence of our society’s most vulnerable and deliver those same souls to their father SATAN! If you support this bill you are culpable and your own soul will be damned.
