Behind the Scenes: #16ToVote Advocacy Project and the Guy with a Plan!

A picture of me in Colorado being interviewed during my walk across the United States in 2015. I had just passed a little more than the halfway point in early August of that year.

New blog address, new effort to lower the voting age! But before I get into the details, I think an introduction would be proper.

My name is Jester Jersey and I was born, raised and live in California. For many years, I have been a supporter of lowering the voting age to 16. The story is long, so I’ll save it for another blog post. For now, I want to just introduce you to some basic stuff about me.

Although I’ve lived in California for many years, I had the opportunity to travel extensively in 2015, when I walked across the United States from New York City to San Francisco. At the time, I had just joined Kiwanis a few years back and wanted to help promote the Eliminate Project.

I was a little surprised at the media attention it got, as I was on several papers of cities I had traveled to and even on local television a few times, like with the pic above. I am hoping to have a more focused campaign that deals specifically with lowering the voting age, and I’ll be detailing what I can.

If you’re here, you’re probably interested in helping to lower the voting age to 16. You might have also stumbled onto my blog or was referred here to learn about the new movement. Either reason is fine. If you’re curious about wanting to help out and are convinced you want to help after reading my blog post in the next few weeks, then reach out to me. If you can’t help directly, there are other ways you can still help. Just leave a comment here or contact me through Twitter and I’ll fill you in on how you can help. Thanks!
