Tanya Wildt Detroit Free Press Published 6:09 p.m. UTC Jun 14, 2018 A bill introduced in the Michigan Legislature this week wants to change the state's voting age to 16. If you're torn on whether you want to see teens in voting booths, there's an episode of "The West Wing" that tackles both sides of the debate.

Jeremy and Carolyn Eastburn with their daughter, Presley, who died in December 2016 at the age of 4. She was strangled on a custom window blind the family bought for their new home near Houston.
