In Response to RE: Memoir Prompt November 2012: The act of voting by rmcginnis
I think "Being old enough to fight" and "Males having to register for Selective Service" played a major part in changing the age requirement. I don't remember how females were affected by the change of age 18 being allowed to vote. Seems like there were a lot of 18 year olds that would increase the voting population. This shows you how much of an impact it makes. I have also heard on the news that the Latino (Hispanic) population of 18 year olds increases on a monthly basis. That's a whole lot votes. Sometimes it's hard for the politics not to come up but it is what it is.
