Meet Madison Kimrey, 12-year-old voting rights activist

Twelve-year-old Madison Kimrey may not be old enough to vote, but she is determined that North Carolinians should be able to do so without any kind of suppression.

A participant in “Moral Monday” protests and writer of her own blog about politics, Madison has started a MoveOn petition to meet with Governor Pat McCrory, as she calls it, “citizen to Governor.” She has also started a youth organization, North Carolina Youth Rock, that is advocating for the reintroduction of a voter preregistration bill for 16- and 17-year-olds. I spoke with Madison this week about how she got involved in political activism and her demands for the accountability of politicians to the citizens who elect them.
