Youth protests during this time used the slogan “Old enough to fight, old enough to vote” to push for which of the following?

B. Universal Suffrage


The slogan has to do with young men being called to fight when they were not old enough to vote, so these protests pushed for lowering the voting age to 18. The Voting Rights Act, (A), concerned racial discrimination in voting, and universal suffrage, (C), removed the property requirement to extend voting rights to all white men during westward expansion. Poll taxes, (C), charging people to vote, had nothing to do with age, so you can eliminate this answer also.
