In Part III (pp 39), the State gets into its real argument: It is the States that set the age of majority, not the Federal Government.
OK, if this indeed is the case, then why is an 18 year old male required by federal law, not state law, to register for the draft?
My understanding, though it very well can be wrong, is that the federal age of majority is 18 and the draft registration requirement is based on that.

And isn't the legal age to vote also based on the same thing?
