From the Sept. 29 Post-Gazette: "Wait a minute, Sophie! Wasn't the voting age 21 back then?"
"I lived in the Third Ward in the Hill [District], and I was barely 18 at the time, but I voted," she recalled. "You had to be 21 ... [but] they didn't pay much attention to the rules. I was a committee woman when I was 18 years old; I wasn't old enough to vote, but I voted anyway."
Thank you to former Mayor Sophie Masloff, who in one published statement illustrated the need for the voter ID law.
