Yes they should Everyone should be allowed to vote. Everyone thinks that 16's years and older have the privilege to vote but some 18's year old just vote for fun. Some 10 and 11 years old want to vote and want to know the world and how it is going. So that is why I think younger people should have the privilege to vote.All people should have the right to vote. People don't need to prove that they are worthy. People support their candidate with their reasons. Even if someone is not as intelligent as somebody else, it does not mean that they should not have the right to vote. The people did not make this country messed up. The whole country did. You should not blame it on just the people. It is the candidates' choices to want to run for president. If both presidents suck, then we must choose one. That is not the people's fault at all. My reasons are also backed up by the fifteenth amendment. Ever been to history class folks? I'm sure you've had. Some people are being sexist, or thinking that only men should vote because they are of a male gender. This does not support any lawful justices. That is a stupid assumption. Finally, women can have the capability as any other man on this earth. That is the hard, cold truth. Think about that the next time you ask yourself this question, "Should all people have the right to vote?"

Veryone should have the right to vote, even 16 and 17 year olds First of all, the 6th Amendment says, "The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age."

First of all, the 6th Amendment says, "The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age." So everyone 18 and above has the right to vote and should vote. Second, the voting age should be lowered to 16 because the youth have no say in what the future they will be living in will look like. Also, 16 and 17 year olds are mature enough to make logical decisions, so they can vote smartly. That's my opinion. Take it or leave it.
It says in the Constitution that everyone is allowed to vote, every race, color, and gender. Plus it is an right that everyone gets when they turn 18 years of age. If you don't think that i am correct look at the fifteenth amendment it says right there. So therefor everyone should have the right to vote
Everybody that is younger than 18 years old should be aware of how their life would be in the future when they get the chance to vote and change the world they live in. Another reason is because the president should consider to hear everybody's opinion and their needs in this world.
This is not correct and not soting give me the correct one and i have many more doots so please say me the correct one. You are saying me wrong the answer I want want to see you but I have no choice to see you but so you are so I don't want to surprise your Kids channel
Because they are picking someone to look and secure their social and stuff and bills and there house bills and our investments and the fifteen amendment and the first amendment the our freedom of speech and thats our freedom by voting and we should be able to vote no matter what
First of all: Women should have NEVER been allowed to vote.
And even of all men, only about 40-50% of all men over the age of 25 years, should be allowed to vote.
Men who can PROVE THAT THEY CONTRIBUTE to our society.
Only men who are NOT on entitlement support and who pay a minimum in taxes should be allowed to vote.
People who are EASILY MISLED AND DECEIVED BY MASSMEDIA should have NO RIGHT TO VOTE AT ALL.
Of course, the criminal jews who have hijacked this nation and who make up this CLOWN government, will NEVER allow this. It was THEM who have introduced general suffrage, IN ORDER TO CONQUER US and in order to mold THEIR EVERLASTING RULE in concrete !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHY SHOULD WE ALLOW THIS MADNESS ANY LONGER ??
LEFTIST LIBERAL POLITICIAN SCUM BUYING VOTES FROM 60% OF VOTERS WHO ARE NOTHING ELSE BUT FREELOADERS AND WELFARE QUEENS !!!!!!!!
This country would have been 20-100times BETTER OFF, if we never allowed 1) women and 2) the scum to vote (or buy themselves votes).
BUT MOST OF YOU IGNORANT BRAINWASHED EDJEWCATED FOOLS CANNOT EVEN IMAGINE A MUCH MORE JUST, MORE GODLY, LESS TYRANNICAL AND SANE NATION !!
And yes, i would rather RENOUNCE to my own voting power too, if i fell short the requirement, rather than having 1) all the misled and easily deceived women (which are some 85% or more) and 2) all the scum (including criminals, psychologically sick etc.) VOTING in this godforsaken country.
The system is very messed up. Many people who don't know anything vote for a candidate because they like his name or the way he looks. Those people should not have any say in this country. On the other hand, you have some knowledgeable children that can't vote because of their age! Then we turn around and say "Hey, why is our country getting messed up?"
I think there should be a test that one must pass in order to be able to vote. The test should contain very simple questions on politics, economics, and on what's going on in the world, and one should be allowed to take the test at any point in one's life regardless of age.
Certain people have proven to society that they are not capable of making moral or intelligent decisions. Consistent felons and people with a mental condition have the right to vote even though it is hard to make a case where one supports the opinion that they aid society. There should be minimum requirements for voters
Most voters are low information idiots and believe such stories as WMD’s, Hezbollah are in Venezuela, Mexico has isis training camps, Assad gassed his own people etc and when we find out these stories are made up the sheep still believe it so no, Not everyone should get the vote
How many voters out there understand the complex nuances of the economic system? How about foreign policy relations? Military strategy? Health care reform? Social security? The answer is VERY few. There are so few people who are qualified to make such important decisions on the behalf of hundreds of millions of others. If we are being honest. . . The average person is a fucking idiot. We should we allow the uneducated, Incapable of critical thinking to elect those who control us? Democracy may be the best of all evils, But it is evil nonetheless.
I am not a fan of our democracy because you just have to be a convincing speaker who adjusts their message based on the worries currently concerning the voters to become the head of our nation. Not whose policy makes sense or their actual qualifications to be the Commander and Chief of our military forces. And it has been proven throughout history how easy it can be to manipulate the voters with the many tools available. Now this is not the fault of the politicians, It is the fault of the people. In order to improve democracy, People need to start thinking for themselves before they decide to vote. My parents voted for George W. Bush because they thought he’d be like his father and I know several of my coworkers voted for Obama because he was going to be the first black president. We live in a democracy run by easily swayed public opinions and, If you compare the actual number of people who voted for the past few elections, One also ran by apathy as only 51% of eligible Americans voted in the last election. Almost half the country didn’t give a crap about the direction our country would take in the next four years.
People need to think for themselves, Do their own research and care enough to vote to ensure we get a better democracy than our current system.
But that is a perfect world and it is highly doubtful that will ever come to pass, Just as I believe knowledge should be restricted to the people, Power should be as well. The common person has proven to be too easily swayed by emotions over rational thinking to determine how a country should be ran.
To be entirely honest, As long as their normal lives aren’t negatively affected I don’t think many people would care about what goes on in the nation’s capital whether we were a democracy, A dictatorship or a corporate ran monopoly of the elite as so many people say that we are.
That people who actively destroy their communities, Who sell their vote for Coupons, Who have 0 clues of how a State works, Who are even illiterate have a vote as valuable as those who know better and can see the bigger picture of policies and political statements. It is another way of stealing our votes, By making them negligible in the sea of incapable voters.
At least for my country, The Dominican rep.
Not everyone should be allowed to vote. The average person, at least in the United States, unfortunately generally has little to no understanding of what is going on in their world, locally or abroad. If you want to vote you should first have to take a basic aptitude and literacy exam signifying that you are at least marginally informed and of a sound mind. Especially in local elections you'll see these dumb assholes always vote their party lines even if they've never heard of or know nothing about a candidate evidenced by things like judges getting voted into office regularly even though the judicial ratings by the local bar association rates them as very unfit for the job and even though they have a history of being absolutely atrocious. Modern politics is too much like a football game for the majority of voters where they pick a side and rabidly defend and stick to it regardless of circumstance. It's a sad FACT, but the majority of the population is simply too utterly uneducated and incapable such that they shouldn't even have any sort of say at all in what goes on in the world. It's honestly disgusting how stupid most people are, but since those people are in the mass majority, we continue to get things like the ultra-manipulative media and catastrophic presidencies.
Socrates (Paraphrase): If you were hiring a crew for a ship, would you choose an experienced crew with knowledge of the seas and knowledge of sailing life, or would you choose just, anybody? Of course not!
To those people using emotional arguments about 16 year olds voting, it's more than just being part of a community, it's about choosing your leader for the next half a decade and maybe even longer. It don't think anybody takes voting as a joke, I think that the real threat are uninformed voters who don't know much about the political system and our country.
Some people think it would be funny if little kids would be allowed to vote. Some people are saying that a three year old would be allowed to vote. What if they don't know how to? These things aren't cool. It's just showing that we are all ignorant, that none of us should be voting.
