Madison Kimrey is quite comfortable talking about early preregistration for teen voters, demanding a meeting with the North Carolina governor and speaking to Al Sharpton on MSNBC.
She's 12.
The tween, who lives in Burlington, N.C., calls herself an activist, suffragette and feminist. Her main cause is working to restore voter pre-registration for 16 and 17-year-olds in her home state, then making a case for it at the national level.
"It's going to happen eventually, if I'm 60 before it happens," Madison said in a phone interview from North Carolina earlier this week. "Honestly, I just want to get early pre-registration back in my state. But my big goal is to get a federal law passed."
