A Milwaukee Democrat is hoping to increase the number of young people who vote.
State Rep. Mandela Barnes' bill would let 16- and 17-year-olds pre-register to vote when they apply for a driver's license or state ID card. Then, when they turn 18, the state would automatically add them to the voting rolls.
Mike Wilder is co-chairman of the African-American Civic Engagement Roundtable in Milwaukee. He says similar laws in other states have helped increase voter participation among young people.
