The problem that I am trying to combat is voter apathy and injustice. If we can bring young people into the system earlier, while they are more likely to get involved, they might have civic responsibility instilled in them for life. Since this would affect young perople still in high school, it would be easier to educate voters about the issues and make a more informed electorate. The injustice that this movement combats is that in many states, young people as young as 14 years old can be tried as adults in court but can not vote. Another injustice is that 17 year olds can enlist in the military, but have no say in who their commander in chief is. These injustices will be alleviated a bit when young people are given the right and responsibility that they deserve.
