Young people can enlist in the military before turning 18 years old and are already working and paying taxes. If they can serve in the military, they also deserve the right to vote. Military personnel should be able to vote on decisions that affect the government and the country they are serving. Proposition 18 allows those who turn age 18 by a November general election to vote in that year’s primary election.

Many veterans join our fire ranks and to support future enlisted personnel, we recommend yes on Proposition 18.
