BERNIE CHANGES THE LAW: Ohio Rules in Favor to Let 17yr Olds Vote

Screen Shot 2016-03-11 at 6.18.53 PMHow convenient for him. Wonder how this will swing the state? Thoughts?

Bernie Sanders just got a big break in Ohio. After a ruling from a judge in Franklin County, 17-year-olds in the Buckeye State will now be able to vote in presidential primaries.

This is particularly good news for Sanders, given his support among voters under 30 stretches as high as 80-85% support in the election thus far.

In many other states, 17-year-olds are allowed to vote in primary elections if they will turn 18 before the date of the general election vote — which in this year’s case is scheduled for November 8, 2016. Ohio is seen as a must-win state for Bernie Sanders, as Ohioans vote on March 15th, along with North Carolina, Missouri, Florida, and Illinois.
