Synhorst says. A three judge Federal court panel ruled that the 1970 voting rights Law which includes a provision lowering the voting age from 21 to 18, was constitutional. The 1970 Law also places bans on literacy tests and certain residency requirements in presidential elections. The judges said that 18-year-Olds would be denied their equal Protection guaranteed by the 14th amendment if they were not allowed to vote. While the first Section of the 14th amendment guarantees citizens equal Protection of the Laws the second Section a in providing _ 160.000 new Iowa voters seen for representation in Congress mentions a voting age of 21. The judges said the second Section a has no limiting effect on the general language of Section one with respect to voting qualifications and thus there is no limit on Congress to lower the voting age by statute. The court acted on a suit against atty. Gen. John n. Mitchell and the new York City Board of elections brought by five new yorkers. The suit claimed lowering the voting age to 18 was not authorized by any provision of the Constitution and hence violated the 10th amendment which gives the states All Powers which were not specifically Given to the Federal government. The new yorkers have the right to Appeal to the supreme court the decision by court of appeals judges David l. Bazel son and George e. Mackinnon and . District judge William b. Bryant. The High court is slated to hear a suit challenging the 18-year-old voting provision brought by nine states. The states will argue oct. 19 that Congress acted unconstitutionally in giving 18-year-Olds the vote. Synhorst advised of the ruling and asked for an estimate of How it might affect Iowa said it would be difficult to determine How Many voters it might add. After some calculations which he stressed were Only rough he came up with the figure of 160,000 new voters. His calculations were based on 1960 census figures in which the voting age population of Iowa was estimated at roughly 1.65 million. Adding the 160,000 new voters would bring the figure to just Over 1.8 million. Although preliminary 1970 census figures for Iowa have been announced Synhorst said he did not yet have the kinds of breakdowns needed to estimate the number of new voters and hence had to fall Back on 1960 figures. The new Federal Law is not effective until Jan i so no one Between 18 and 21 will be Able to vote in the nov. 3 general election Synhorst noted. He also pointed out that the Federal Law would eliminate the need for a proposed constitutional amendment passed by the 1970 Iowa legislature to Grant full adult rights at 19. That proposed amendment under Iowa Law would have had to pass either the 1971 or 1972 legislature and then be approved by voters to have become effective. 134th year no. 232 86 pages Dubuque Iowa end East Dubuque Illinois sunday october 4, 1970 7 sections regal setting allow Llam Previ this is a general View of the gala dinner Given for president Richard Nixon and his wife at the Madrid Royal Palace during Nixon a visit to general Francisco Franco in Spain.
