Well, I Found It
Tucked away down at the bottom of an otherwise reasonable report about the California Senate Committee on Elections decision to ban all electronic voting for the November Election was this decision, too:
The Senate committee also passed a measure Wednesday that would lower the voting age to 14. Votes by 14- and 15-year-olds would count as one-quarter of a vote, and 16- and 17-year-olds would cast votes worth one-half. The proposal by Sen. John Vasconcellos, D-Santa Clara, passed 3-2 and is scheduled to be heard in the constitutional amendment committee next week.
A quarter of a vote???
