Vote November 4th- It's a Constitutional Amendment

The US Constitution is the oldest Constitution and still in active use in the world today and is
the basic document of our Republic, which protects the individual liberties of all citizens
through written law.

Did you know that you cannot be denied the right to vote because of race or
gender? But remember, the Constitution never clearly ensures us the “right to vote”.

The 26th Amendment requires that 18 year-olds must be able to vote, however states can allow persons younger than 18 to vote if they chose. The qualifications for voters are left to the states as long as they do not conflict with in the Constitution. In some states, felons that are in prison or on probation are denied the right to vote.
