Age Discrimination in Voting at Home

Seven states currently discriminate on the basis of age in their vote-at-home (also known as absentee ballot) systems. In this novel report, a coalition including The Andrew Goodman Foundation, Equal Citizens, UCLA Voting Rights Project, Vote at Home Institute, and Stris & Maher LLP explains why these laws are unconstitutional under the Twenty-Sixth Amendment, which prohibits age discrimination in voting.
