San Juan approved the vote at 16
October 11, 2012
The province of San Juan became the first district in the country to pass the bill of vote at age 16. The ruling was broad support with only three votes against.
The project was based on “Article 129 Clause II of the Provincial Constitution enacted in 1986, by which voters will be those citizens over eighteen as provided in this Constitution and the law, which may reduce the minimum age to sixteen, but not increase it.”
The Provincial Constitution states, “The law shall regulate the electoral right on a uniform basis for the entire province,” said the lawmakers.
This electoral reform will allow more than 25,000 young people to vote in the elections of 2015, although this could be brought forward to 2013 in the event that Congress sanctioned a federal project with these characteristics.
