During her weekly press conference on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated her support for lowering the federal voting age to 16. Pelosi (D-Calif) made the remark after she was asked about a recent House vote in which lawmakers rejected a proposal to let 16-year-olds vote in federal elections. "I, myself, personally -- I'm not speaking for my caucus -- I, myself, have always been for lowering the voting age to 16," Pelosi said. "I think it's really important to capture kids when they're in high school, when they're interested in all of this, when they're learning about the government, to be able to vote." She acknowledged that changing the voting age is "a subject of debate," but she reiterated that she would welcome that change. Guy Benson took it to the callers, Is 16 too young to vote?
