Amendment 26 Presentation
Transcript of Amendment 26 Presentation
Prior to campaigning, the candidate needs to have spent 15 years as a citizen of the United States.
All other criteria for becoming a president will remain:
You must be 35 years old
A president can only be in office for two terms • Oregon and Texas challenged President Nixon’s 1970 extension in court • In Oregon v. Mitchell, 400 U.S. 112 (1970), the Supreme Court declared unconstitutional the parts of the law that required states to register 18-year-olds for state and local elections • This ruling meant that the law could only apply to federal elections, which meant states would have to have separate voting rolls for voters between 18 and 20 years old and special ballots for them to vote on federal races •https://www.shapethefuture.org/features/youthvote.asp •http://www.futuremajority.com/node/13469 •http://www.laapush.org/supremecourt45.htm
As a result of the 26th Amendment, youth has been playing an increasingly more significant role and is better represented
Ages 18-29 represented 19% of all who voted in the last election (Obama vs. Romney)
Apparent lack of enthusiasm among college students- polling shows that fewer students than ever registered or even planned to vote
1% increase in youth voter turn-out since 2008
In the 2008 election, Obama had 66% of youth vote over John McCain, who had 31% of youth vote
In the 2012 election, Obama had 60% of youth vote over Romney, who had 36% of the vote. This shows a 5% increase of youth vote for more conservative ideologies
In 2004, Kerry won youth vote by 9%
Youth made up 17% of the overall voter turnout in 2004 when Kerry was defeated by Bush Amendment in the News Question: Would you support an amendment that allows citizens who are not born the United States to become President, as long as they fill the other criteria and have been United States citizens for at least 15 years Results: 50/50%. Out of 20, 10 people supported our proposed amendment and 10 people disagreed. Description of who responded: The sampling crowd was mixed, with nearly an equal number of boys and girls. Those who said yes seemed to contemplate their answer more than those who said no.

20% of young voters did not have a current state-issued driver's license.
-Studies found that 700,000 young minority voters weren't able to vote in 2012 because of photo ID laws.
