Democratic Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley introduced the legislation Tuesday evening as an amendment to House Democrats’ “For The People Act,” which would overhaul federal election laws.

Pressley’s amendment fell short at 126-305.

House Democrats voted 125-108 in favor of Pressley’s amendment, with two members voting present and three members not voting.

House Republicans voted against the amendment 197-1. Texas Rep. Michael Burgess was the only Republican to vote aye.

Pressley cited teen activists pushing for gun control as a reason to give 16-year-olds the right to vote, which she compared to having a driver’s license.

“Young people are at the forefront of some of our most existential crises,” she said in her remarks Tuesday. “The time has come. Our young people deserve to have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote.”

  1. The demorats are strictly trying to enlarge their stupid, uninformed voter base. Heck, 16-yr-olds can barely decide what cereal to have for breakfast (let alone eat Tide Pods) and the demorats want them to decide our country’s future!

        1. THAT IS WHAT YOU BELIEVE “IN YOUR DREAMS”………TOO BAD THAT ALL LIBERALS ARE EMPTY HEADED IDIOTS………..

    1. You are absolutely right ! They are not mature enough or involved enough to vote for our countries leaders. The Dems have gained control of their minds through the EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM and now want them for their votes. Otherwise, They could NOT care less about these kids or what happens to them. If they did. they would not be trying to DEPOPULATE or push abortion like they are. They are in a panic and are closer to GITMO than ever. I can’t wait.

    2. They can get their vote by promising them free college and such. When i was sixteen i would have voted for anything with breasts or wheels.

    1. If they , at 16 are old enough, mature enough to help decide our countries future, then they are old enough to serve in the Armed Forces too…Bring back the draft at age 16 and see how many cry and whine they are too young…..

  2. Do these same idiot Democrats (and 1 Republican) then think that 16 year olds should also run for and hold public office? I mean, if having a driver’s license is the criteria, then the next light bulb idea from these morons is that anyone with a driver’s license can hold public office. No matter the age, citizenship, country of origin, criminal history, life experiences etc.
    All we need to do is watch how this is working out for the freshman House of Rep. members.
    All 125 plus 1 of the House members who agreed with this proposal should be closely watched and in the next election of House members BE REMOVED!

  3. Does that then mean that they , the 16 year olds, can also run for office? If having a drivers license is the criteria, then do the idiot Democratic congress people think they should also be able to hold public office? I mean, what could possibly go wrong? More published evidence that these Democratic (and 1 Republican) morons should not be voted in to hold public office, EVER

  4. Democrats want younger America’s to vote, they feel the younger they are the more they’ve been brainwashed by radical left individuals that have been teaching in our schools and Universities for a number of years now. They’re hopeing the teachings of these hate filled American radicals have finally come to fruition.

  5. If you think that 16 year olds are mature enough to vote and actually understand the issues without being taught REAL history and learning and understanding Civics, then they shouldn’t have restrictions on driving at 16, should be able to smoke at 16, and should also be allowed to drink instead of waiting until they are 21. I think that 18 is young to be voting, but since that is an age when they can go into the military and are considered an adult with never having experienced REAL LIFE maybe they can be responsible in real life. If you are using the misinformation that many are spreading about guns and advocate taking guns away from legal/responsible gun owners in violation of the Second Amendment, then I guess you would be ignorant enough to think they are ready to vote at 16. Currently our schools are run by liberals who are brainwashing our kids from Kindergarten through College, so why not?
    If I get to vote on it, I promise a BIG NO ! How mature were you at 16?

  6. I thought you would need a Constitutional Amendment to do that. and especially to allow non citizens to vote. That is another way Democrats are trying to destroy our country. Also if any one is acting like A. Hitler it is the Democrats by not standing up for the jewish nation and its people.

      1. that is true but you must remember that we have already had one illegal alien posing as President, so unless you want a bunch of gang bangers and purple haired misfits running the country you better start putting some serious pressure on your currant elected officials it also might be a good time to start changing the voting age to 30 years old, and state that no one under that age can be elected to any office above janitor of city hall.

    1. I said to some of my friends a few weeks ago that the democrats have become the party of Hitler after New York governor signed a bill legalize abortion up until birth and infantasize and also when Virginia governor also talking about legalize abortion up until birth and if a botched abortion baby is born alive to make the baby confortable and talk about what to do with the new born baby. How can you make a new born baby conforable and let the baby die. This is infntasize. And also confirm my belief that the Democrats are becoming the party of Hitler by the democrats watered down anti-semitism whats amount to nothing.

  7. The Democrats are such a disgrace it’s unreal now they want 16-year-old babies to vote because they can corrupt them because they’re not smart enough to know any better! they love illegal aliens they want all of them here they want to give them amnesty so they can vote! every Democrat should be thrown out of office every Democrat voter should be deported To Venezuela and take AOC with you! That’s her kind of country that’s what she wants for America ! All Democrat voters are traitors to America and the American people you should be ashamed of yourself because we are ashamed of you !

  8. What is next to be proposed? How about a maximum voting age, say, after 55 years of age one will no longer be able to cast a vote for President of the United States. Reasons for such a law to forbid voting after age 55 years could be that you are considered senile, feable and, unable to use “good judgement” when casting a vote. (Nudge nudge, Wink, wink.)

  9. Most 16 YO’s could not find water if they fell out of a boat. They would be impressed by the promise of a free unicorn courtesy of the Demoncrats. Remember folks a Democrat promise is like a Trojan horse. It is beautiful on the outside but inside there is an UGLY ulterior motive.

  11. Most 16 yr. olds don’t even care about politics! Most of them care about getting drivers license, going to the prom, finishing high school, & going to college. Democrats are looking for more minds to brainwash!

  12. Democrats want only people who will elect democrats regardless of knowledge, goodness or ability to think those attributes are not found in any democrat.Open borders is the beginning of Marxism and Marxism is the Democrat’s end game where they put everyone who disagrees into Gulags as Stalin and Mao did.Every American hellhole is a gift from a democrat to a black voter.
