Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has confirmed her support for lowering the legal voting age from 18 to 16, according to reports.

The House defeated an amendment to a voting and campaign finance bill that would have reduced the legal age for voting to sixteen years old in federal elections. 

“I myself have always been for lowering the voter age to 16,” said Pelosi.

“I think it’s really important to capture kids when they are in high school when they are interested in all of this, when they are learning about government, to be able to vote.”

The amendment was defeated by 126-305.

Pelosi said that changing the voting age “is a subject of debate."

Last week, Neon Nettle reported a similar push by Pelosi, who said during a speech that illegal immigrants should be awarded voting rights in the US, claiming migrants “make America more American,” and we should not be “suppressing the vote of our newcomers.”

House Democrats voted overwhelmingly in favor of allowing illegal immigrants to vote in US elections on Friday.

House Republicans offered an amendment on the House floor that would prevent illegal immigrants from being able to vote in US elections.

The bill was crushed by the Democratic House.
