So now we have the Primary voting about done today. The question is, how does
the Legislature pass a bill contrary to the US Constitution? The Legislature
passed a bill saying it is okay for 17 year olds as long as they get to 18
before the General Voting in November this year. The 26th US
Constitution reads: "The right of citizens of the United States, who are
18 years of age or older, to vote, shall not be denied or abridged by the United
States or any state on account of age.:It does not seem, at least to
me, that 17 is not allowed. Will that change any of the votes this Primary?? I
would think that the Utah Attorney General would pull out any 17 year old votes.
Down here in St George, the single biggest issue that I think will affect the
area moving forward is the Lake Powell Pipeline--a massively expensive project
that will impose a crushing financial burden and exacerbate the already rapid
growth here.Fortunately, either one or both candidates for each of
the 3 seats on the ballot have taken a position on this boondoggle.
