This bill allows major political party to permit a 17 year old to vote in the primary if 18 before the general election. Forces a party to adopt rules to be competitive.
This bill sets up a situation that can be changed every election based on party rules. The real goal is to allow 16 year-olds the vote. So if parties compete for 17 year-olds and establishes that norm, it will be easier to go to 16.
