The 12-year-old suffragette has been vocal about part of a North Carolina bill, recently signed into law by Governor Pat McCrory, which eliminates voter preregistration for 16 and 17 year olds.
When she asked the governor to meet with her, she was told that she was a “prop” for liberal groups. Though her petition garnered over 12 thousand signatures, the governor called her request "ridiculous." In response, Kimrey started a movement called NC Youth Rock. Her speech at a local rally has garnered national attention—which she's using to reach even more young people with her message.
