Ann Arbor, Michigan-Wednesday, July 21, 1971
Eight Pages plus Supplement
LANSING (R) -Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley ruled yester-
day that young people between the ages of 18 and 21, can
now hold any public office in Michigan for which they are
otherwise qualified and which has no specific age limita-
Kelley said his ruling is based on the adoption of the
26th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which provides
that the rights of citizens 18 years of age or older cannot
y ~be abridged by any state because of age.
Theoretically, therefore, Michigan could have an 18-
year-old Secretary of State run-
nine the licensing and regulation
ef the state's motorists.
There could be 18-year-old sher-
iffs. As well, young people the
same age could control the gov-
erning boards of the University,
Michigan State University and
Wayne State University.
An 18-year-old Ann Arbor resi-
dent could also become mayor
or any other official of the city
according to Kelley's ruling.
"This is an excellent develop-
ment," Kelley said yesterday.
"It will inure effectively bring
young people into the system by
allowing them to run for office.
Hopefully, in some cases, they
will win. I am thinking in par-
ticular of positions on the gov-
erning boards of the universi-
Kelley supplied a list of public
offices for which the young peo-
ple are qualinied, including those
with minimum age provisions.
The governor and lieutenant
governor must be at least 38. So
must a U.S. senator. Representa-
tives in Congress must be at
least 25. State senators and rep-
resentatives need only be 21.
There is no minimum age re-
quirement for Michigan's secre-
tary of state-third highest stale
elective office. Thus, an 18-year-
old could run.

nounced yesterday that Roger
Heyns, formerly chancellor of
the University of California at
Berkeley, has accepted the presi-
