Florida Approves 16-year-old Advance Registration
Late registration plagues the young end of the voter spectrum across the nation, resulting in a relatively low voting percentage. With this reform, young voters are given a running start in to the voting practice, a year earlier than before, which should result in a boost for young voter turnout.
Florida now joins Hawaii with allowing 16-year-olds to register. Rhode Island"s legislature passed a similar bill in 2006, although it was vetoed by the governor. Similar proposals have been offered in Maryland, Minnesota and Michigan this legislative session.
