  • Yes, you should be able to vote if you're 17.

    Yes, if you're going to be 18 by the time of the actual primary. Soon to be 18-year-olds shouldn't have to wait 4 more years to vote in a primary. It's also a good experience and can prep you for the real thing. So yes seventeen year olds should be able to vote.

  • If they will be 18 by the general election

    If they are eligible to vote in the general election they should have a say in choosing the candidates who will stand for that election. Likewise if they would be 18 at the time it occured their signature should be considered valid for a petition to put something on the ballot.

  • Allowing 17-year-olds to vote!

    I believe that seventeen year olds should be able to vote in the primary. Since it is not the true election, this may give them the experience that they need in voting. They would learn how to research the candidates, better preparing them for when they are allowed to vote in the general election. This also may encourage more young people to vote.

  • 17 year old is too young to vote

    A 17 year old is too young to vote in the primary. At 17, the maturity is not there. It is also too young to fully understand the consequences of one's actions. People that age do not always make wise choices. Therefore, the current voting age of 18 is appropriate.

  • No, 17-year-olds should not be allowed to vote

    Children legally become adults at the age of 18. This law should be kept in place and no one under the age of 18 should be treated as an adult. Although some 17-year-old individuals are mature enough to vote, many are not. The age of 18 should be maintained as the official age of adulthood, whether for drinking, signing contracts, or voting.

  • No, I do not think 17-year-olds should be allowed to vote in the primary.

    No, I do not think 17-year-olds should be allowed to vote in the primary because they are still fully dependent on their parents and this might influence their decision on who they vote for. The appropriate age should stay at 18 because most 18-year-olds are in their first years in universities and are able to function and think independently.
