17 Year Olds Votings, Can You Say Unconstitutional

Supreme Court struck down a bill from state lawmakers that would have allowed 17 year olds to vote in state primaries as unconstitutional.

In a unanimous decision the state supreme court ruled that the bill allowing 17 year olds to vote would have violated Article 11 Part 1 of the state constitution which reads "All elections are to be free, and every inhabitant of the state of 18 years of age and upwards shall have an equal right to vote in any election."

Senate Bill 436 has already been discussed here in other articles and was a bill I've voiced my concerns with from the start.  UNH Polls concerning the mass ignorance we already have among voters about serious state problems such as the budget deficit are exponentially more when you look at the 18 to 34 year old voting block with 50% saying they know nothing about our states current budget problems.  Why on earth would anyone think its a good idea to open the door to more uninformed voters?  Of course being told that this violates our constitution hasn't stopped it, the bills supporters have already pledged to spend the time and effort now to put up a constitutional amendment to allow this group of young voters to have their say in the primaries.  Here's an idea, how about we spend time educating the voters we already have voting?  How about making them aware of the problems we face so they can make informed choices as far as who is best at tackling the massive budget shortfalls we face?  How about making voters aware of who they are voting for so we do not continue to elect people who ignore our constitution and continue to look for ways to strip rights away from us?  Oh wait, that would mean the majority of those who supported this bill would be out of office.
