Lowell teens fight for right to vote
Should 17 year olds be able to vote in city elections? If you ask the young activists at the United Teen Empowerment Center in Lowell, you’ll get a resounding yes. They are working for a home-rule petition that would give Lowell voters the right to lower the voting age to 17 for city elections. They say he believe teens deserve a say in decision that affect them, and their efforts are gaining attention on Beacon Hill.
