Comments on first year 18 years could vote in Kentucky

Robert Cumming writes:
I don't see how the writer could have legally voted in a presidential election at 18 in the 1968 presidential election with candidates: (Republican Nixon/Agnew vs Democrat Humphrey/Muskie vs Independant Wallace/LeMay) since the 26th Amendment to the Constitution allowing 18 year olds to vote wasn't ratified until July 1 1971(Ky was actually one of 7 states that did not ratify the amendment) The first presidential election for 18 year old voters in Kentucky after the 26th Amendment passed nationwide was Nov 1972 with Republican candidates Nixon/Agnew vs Democrat McGovern/Shriver - Robert Cumming
