Measure Y1 Passes to Lower Voting Age for School Board Elections

Voters in Berkeley overwhelmingly approved Measure Y1, which gives the city council the authority to approve a lower voting age for school board elections through a basic ordinance. The measure passed with over 70% of the vote, a resounding and historic victory for the youth led campaign. Youth leaders will continue working with city council members to ensure the council implements the policy change in a timely manner.
