Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi threw her full support behind the Democrats’ recent push to lower the national voting age to 16 this week; saying the move is an important step in “capturing the kids.”
Pelosi was speaking during her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill Thursday when she revealed her support for the new initiative.

“As far as 16-year-olds voting, where do you see that going into the future?” asked one reporter.
“I, myself, have always been for lowering the voting age to 16. I think it’s really important to capture the kids when they’re in high school, when they’re interested in all of this, when they’re learning about government,” said Pelosi.
