  • No Taxation Without Reprsentation

    Many young people, even teenagers work in the labor force. Teenagers have to pay taxes to the government, and therefore, from the age that they are able to work (usually 15 except for state cases where you can work as young as 12 in certain fields) you should get to vote. Whether they vote well or not is on them, but they should get the chance too.

  • Kids should be able to vote to

    Why, because its will gain a greater interest in the worlds politics and it will promote all sorts of education to the different parties that are running for president, prime minister, ect.I am almost 16 and I fell that I have enough knowledge on how and who to vote for. That's why kids should be able to vote.

  • Younger People Should Vote!!!!!

    If we are going to be in this world we should be able to vote. This is our or world too its not just older peoples world. We are in a free country. If you think about it were are in a free country, if younger people do not get to vote then we are really not in a free county!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Teens should be allowed to vote

    In the American culture, turning 16 has a big significance. The youth tolerates adult responsibilities but not rights. When a teen is 16, they are allowed to drive, allowed to hold a job without restrictions and even pay taxes. Then why not vote? Lowering the voting age can increase the voter turnout. Teens that go with their parents on Election Day are given a Mock vote. If they are participating in the "Kids Voting" then that means that they want participate in the real election as well. Senator Ted Kennedy spoke for the lowering the voting age from 21 to 18 in the year 1971 then why can't we in this day and age lower the voting from 18 to 16 or 17

  • Too many of them are uninformed.

    You're typical College Liberal is a perfect example as to why they should not. I'm not bashing the left at all, I even support some of their ideas. (I am a Moderate). But how these College Students just think they know everything is beyond me. They haven't been out in t real world yet. They've been supported by their parents for their entire lives, and haven't had the experience yet to really understand how the world works and how it effects them. I myself was a College Liberal and as soon as I got into the real world, I kept thinking "But... that's not fair..." so many times it's ridiculous. Young people are just so sympathetic to everything and everyone and demand this equality, before they realize it's their taxes that do it all. Once they figure that out, they start to be a little less sympathetic to people like those on welfare. Granted, there are some very politically informed young people. I once met this 12 year old conservative boy that knew more than most adults about everything. And it had nothing to do with his parents (one of whom was a liberal, the other an independent).

  • No, young people should not vote.

    No, I don't believe that young people should vote. Though this is probably an unpopular stance to take, there are a plethora of reasons why young people shouldn't vote. A few years ago, P. Diddy came on MTV to "Rock the Vote" during the presidential elections. The only problem with MTV telling the youth to vote was that the youth had no actual idea what the policies of each candidate were, and so instead of causing more voter turnout, they actually just caused the voters that did show to practically pick at random from the two major party candidates.

  • Voting

    Depending on how young "young" is, I really don't think people should vote until they are at least 18. They would be too young to be informed and make a correct decision. A candidate can just say one thing that the young voter wants to hear and they will vote for them only for that reason.

  • Teens are more often than not misguided.

    There are teens out there that will simply vote for the act, person or whatever it is, that either relates to them or will benefit them at the time which may not be the best option for the society. Being a teenager right now I can tell you that I wouldn't trust a lot of the kids around my school with the vote, let alone leave my backpack with them. All in all I think that young people can wait to mature a little more before making decisions bigger than themselves in our society.

  • Teens can have a biased opinion based on their education

    If teenagers vote, they will vote with their heart instead of their brain. Teenagers are greatly influenced by their peers and friends, so they might end up voting for whoever their friend is voting for. Besides that, teenagers won't look into the statistics of voting. They'll just choose whoever uses the prettiest words or supports the opinions they were taught. Teenagers haven't matured enough to make serious decisions, voting being one of them. Children and teenagers can wait to vote, just like every single adult in this country did.

  • Younger isn't always better.

    Why should young people be able to vote? As Jimmy Bourke says "Young people would rather play PlayStation and poke each other on Facebook rather than select their government. Sure why not? They don’t care about politics". Why don't they care? Because they're too young. They don't know a good candidate when they see one. They don't know anything, well most of them anyway, but how to play games and chase after their crushes. All this new technology has almost ruined society. But, to stay on topic, young people don't know what the heck they're doing when they vote so therefore they shouldn't be allowed to vote. End of story.

  • Nope, not happening

    Kid's should not vote as they are too young to know what impact parties have on their lives, and they should bee focusing on their education rather than the government. Anyway, the majority of kids don't really care anyway, and the ones that do care cant see the difference between the parties manifestos.

  • They don't know how politics work.

    1. Teenagers don't know how politics work
    2. They will vote for the person who catches their attention .
    3. The party that will have more fun stuff like free youth clubs
    4. Young people do not have the intelligence to make good decisions
    5. Teenagers will make decisions based on them selves
