Law Allows Some 17-Year-Olds to Vote in Primaries
Gov. Pat Quinn has signed a law that allows some 17-year-old Illinoisans to vote in primary elections.
The measure says that if the teenager will be 18 by the general election, they can vote in the primary.
Quinn hopes the law will encourage young adults to take on civic duties. The law takes effect January 1.
