Should the minimum voting age be 18 (Yes) or lower (No)?

  • Really. What will this do for the society?

    Why do teens end up in car accidents? They were texting. Or something else. In my belief, the voting age is unstable where it is now with all these people arguing over it.
    Yes, I've heard the other side of the story. We are focusing on the dumb teens. We do the same things. Maybe we just have to find out what happens.

  • Stop the left agenda to turn adults into children

    I heard a reporter call 26 year olds children. We need to put a stop to the left turning Americans into dependents on government. 18 is a good age for voting but our people's minds are being infested with liberal ideology. In order for them to be responsible voters they need to be properly educated. We need to put a stop to the current public education and redesign it from the ground up American style!

  • 18 is the right age.

    Younger youths would tend to lack the prerequisite perspective/judgement to vote no matter how intelligent they are. While political maturity can be to a certain extent, be lacking or plentiful in people of any age, on balance the adults tend to have better perspective on the issues and maybe understand to some extent of the long term consequences of the decisions. Keep the voting age at 18.

  • Keep it at 18, adults only.

    Children should never have the right to vote. To put it simply, most of them are too stupid. While it's questionable just how much more intelligent they are at 18, I think by that age they are a lot savvier about advertising's influence on them, in a way that younger children are not. This is needed to keep political campaigns from becoming more sensationalist then they already are.

  • Understanding takes maturity.

    The minimum voting age should be 18, because someone who is younger than that cannot truly understand the issues that are before them. A person under 18 is also usually not a part of their own household, so someone with a lot of children would be unfairly represented because they could just tell their children how to vote.

  • 18 As Minimum Voting Age

    Without a doubt, 18 years-old is the appropriate voting age at minimum. People deserve to vote the same year they become an adult in the eyes of the law. Lowering that minimum age doesn't make sense, and raising it would cause far too many problems for our current voting system.

  • The minimum voting age should be lower.

    The voting age should be lowered because people under 18 currently pay taxes and contribute to the economy. Anyone who has a part time job should be allowed to vote in order to have a say in the system to which they are contributing. Students should also get to vote to influence the policies of public schools which they must attend.
