I worked with Dr. Laura Wray-Lake (Associate Professor, UCLA) and Dr. Benjamin Oosterhoff (Assistant Professor, Montana State) to study opinions on lowering the voting age to 16 years old in Los Angeles county. There are several policy initiatives across the U.S. to lower the voting age, but little research on public sentiment. We found that support for lowering the voting age was highest for school board elections and lowest for national elections. Support was higher among teenagers and young adults, and among liberal individuals. The most highly endorsed opposition for lowering the voting age was "16 year olds are too easily influenced by other people to think for themselves," and the most highly endorsed support was that "16 year olds should have a say in policies that directly affect them."
