My argument is that children under the age of 18 should be able to vote in certain circumstances. Here is the round layout:
1: Accept Challenge (Please do not state your argument, just accept the challenge).
2: State your argument.
3: Attack opposing argument.
4: Defend your argument.
5: Final words.

Looking forward to the debate.

Con

Before we begin this debate, American citizen under the age of 18 includes teenagers, children and even toddlers.

Therefore, we must consider the future of this beautiful. If teenagers, whom haven't even graduate from secondary schools, were to vote, imagine the outcome of the election. If children were to vote, they might be easily bribed with simple candies by outsiders, resulting these actions to taint the voting system of this country. If toddlers were to vote, they will definitely toy with the voting system.

In conclusion, it is obvious that we need to think responsibly. Therefore, we shan't allow citizen under the age of 18 to vote due to the fact that they are still not considered as adults nor responsible enough.
