News, Measure to lower voting age to 16 is on the ropes in Culver City in early returns : detailed suggestions and opinions about Measure to lower voting age to 16 is on the ropes in Culver City in early returns .
A youth-driven push for a ballot measure to lower the voting age will likely fall short in Culver City after months of advocacy on both sides.
The ballot initiative, known as Measure VY, would allow Culver City residents as young as 16 to vote in city and school board elections. No other municipality in the country put such a proposition before voters this election cycle.
As of Thursday evening, the latest numbers from the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk show 4,918 votes against the measure compared with 4,264 votes for it, a ratio of about 54% to 46%.
Because the county has yet to finish tabulating ballots, Measure VY is not necessarily dead.
