Is the brain fully developed at the age of 18? Why has the United States not yet lowered the voting age to 16?

As you may believe 16+ should be able to vote, it's simply the law. 18 is what they consider "a young adult".
Would you see a 16 year old leaving mama's home? No, you wouldn't. They'd be considered too young. Around 18, it is believed that most mature a lot more, also by studies I researched on. No, I am not disagreeing that there isn't mature 16 year olds, but you won't find too many.
For another example, there's a game called "ROBLOX". It's meant for teens and kids. You'll find plenty of 15-16 year olds on that game, but you have an extremely rare chance of finding anyone 18+.
The brain is not fully developed at 18, because you get smarter the older you grow, as the phrase says.
They tried to choose a young age, but a large enough population of that age that's mature, mostly because they don't want random votes choosing. They did it at 18 instead of 16 because 18 is supposedly more mature. It would have probably been 20+, but they wanted younger people to be able to vote for the generation's future, but nobody too wild, like most of the 16 year olds.

womens brains develope faster than mens. So 23 for women and 28 for men. But pls note, some brains never fully develope.

Hm, I posted randomly because you didn't make it clear on if you were against it being 18+ or for it.

It's erroneous for you to post a argument on the "against" side, that is clearly defined, in hopes that you will win a easy debate. Very pretentious of you.
