Ramaswamy proposes raising voting voting age to 25, unless people serve in military or pass a test

Vivek Ramaswamy, a Republican presidential candidate, recently advocated for raising the minimum voting age to 25 unless young Americans have served at least six months in the military or pass the citizenship test ordinarily administered to immigrants seeking naturalized citizenship. During a campaign event in Urbandale, Iowa Ramaswamy said that the absence of national pride is a major issue in the United States and that raising the voting age could, “create a sense of shared purpose and responsibility amongst young Americans to become educated citizens.”
