Pro

17 year olds should be able to vote because it helps but notice teens need something to do before becoming an adult nobody wants to vote unlike teens . this is my first debate so have mercy please

Con

I argue that 17 year olds are still too young to vote [1]

A) They are not old enough to make good decisions

B) They are not old enough to join the military and therefor too young to vote

C) They are still too immature to vote since they are still into porn and video games

D) They are not ready for such responsibility

E) 17 year olds don't understand politics yet

F) 17 year olds are still not adults and therefore, should not vote
