Hawaii students and civic organizations are working to advocate for 16-year-old voting on the state level. A bill introduced in 2019 was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee in February 2020, with strong support from students and influential organizations including the Association of Hawaiian Civic Clubs, the Hawaii chapter of Common Cause, and other partners. Advocates and champions in the legislature look forward to the next steps in the process.
