Resolution would allow minors in voting booth


In an effort to increase voter turnout, the Baltimore City Council wants to allow minors to accompany their parents into voting booths.

Councilwoman Helen Holton of 5th District introduced the resolution at last night's council meeting.

The resolution asks the chairmen of the city Senate and House delegations to the Maryland General Assembly to introduce and support legislation that would permit children younger than 18 to be allowed into the booths. Children 5 and younger now are allowed to accompany their parents.
