Two propositions headed to November’s ballot could add new demographics to San Francisco’s electorate — teenagers and immigrant parents.Isn't it time to start thinking about kicking California out of the United States?
Proposition F would allow 16- and 17-year-olds to cast a ballot in municipal elections for the Board of Education and the Governing Board of the Community College District. The other measure, Proposition N, would amend the City Charter to let parents and guardians of children living in the city vote in Board of Education elections.
For a city known for its acceptance and liberal leanings, more open elections seem natural, supporters of the measures say.
“San Francisco was one of the first to be a sanctuary city and a supporter of marriage equality,” said Prop. N supporter Gabriel Medina, a policy manager with the Mission Economic Development Agency, which offers free financial services to low-income families.
