17-Year-Olds Now Allowed To Vote In Primaries

17-year-olds can now cast ballots in Illinois… in certain situations. 


Governor Pat Quinn has signed legislation allowing a 17-year-old voter to take part in a primary… if that voter will turn 18 by the time of the subsequent general election.  Quinn says the new law will increase participation in democracy. 


Illinois becomes the 21st state to include such a provision in its election code.
