The Top Ten

1 There are too many childish adults voting in government elections already

Thank you so much for the list! I'd been saying over and over again that the voting age needs to be changed back to 21 (I'm 16 by the way), just because we have enough idiots not knowing politics and voting anyways as it is. - SevenTreeTool

Bull don't forget kids!

THis is true so that should mean some smart youth should take their place and be able to vote as well

its true

2 Kids will vote for politicians for the wrong reasons

And what is the "legitimate political reason" offered by the other two candidates? Free stuff, and even more free stuff. At least Trump is giving away his OWN stuff.

When I was a kid, I wanted to vote for Bush because I didn't like Al Gore's name. Good thing I couldn't vote back then. - Zach808

So called " adults" vote for the wrong reasons too - RustyNail

True in my school for student council in elementary school they voted someone president for promising no homework.

3 Kids voting is the last thing the economy needs

There's worse things for the economy than that But I agree with most of this list and I'm not a kid. - Cesium

Kids Are Ignorant - TheCanadianLemon

4 Most kids simply can't handle the responsibility of voting

Voting isn't just writing on a piece of paper, it's the decision that you make and WHAT you write down. Judging from what you just said, YES, it's probably too hard for you and I hope for the good of democracy that you never vote.

Its literally just writing on a piece of paper. Now, is that so hard? - GrapeJuiceK

5 Kids have other priorities other than politics

I dunno, maybe if all the long term effects of this election were going to be your future, like you know global warming, immigration, international relations, and many more issues... those kinds of things, then you just might have that on your list of high priority. And you know what really sucks, knowing that your future is in someone else's hands and you can barely do a thing about it. Especially this year. Let me tell you as a freshman in high school that almost every "kid" I know wishes they could do something. I have a friend going out and getting "adults" to vote even if she can't, I have a lot of friends who are scared and some who can't sleep because it's their future, I have a friend who has given speeches and afterwords people told her that they'd vote for her, a "kid", for president, I have friends who have been in political protests like black lives matter or LGBTQ+. I'm thinking if people outside our country have this election on their high priority list, the the kids in ...more

Politics rule -kj age 7

Like wondering what's inside the swimming pool or playing on Xboxes - TwilightKitsune

6 Most kids lack maturity when it comes to politics

I'm twelve and here's my lack of maturity; Donald trump should go back to the construction site to give them his brain full of bricks back. - AnonymousChick

Anonymous Chick: Here's ALL you need to know; you know absolutely NOTHING.

haha

To the people who hate AnonymousChick's comment, you are all hypocrites.
Had she said something negative about Hillary Clinton, you would all be praising MY list instead, saying that not ALL kids are stupid or something like that.
Please, all of you are just angry that your Majest El Trumpo was insulted. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

7 Kids have more intellectual ability than intellectual reasoning
8 Some kids don't know anything about politics

All kids no nothing about politics. They believe all the lies told by the liberal media. Seriously? All that college education isn't gonna stop you from being dumb. The people that run our government don't care about the American people. They don't care about veterans. They only care about Muslims and black lives trash. Obama is almost out and in prison, so are you really gonna vote for Hillary, murderer by proxy and wife and defender of a rapist and Bernie, a wannabe dictator and communist who wants to take 90% of our money, and make it worse? - bobbythebrony

I knew stuff about local politics back when I was 7, but I lacked knowledge in the national level. If I were brainwashed by gimmicks in the political ads, and other people of my age also did, then my country would have been messed up ever since. This applies to all countries.

Fox News has easily got to be the most biased news network of all time. Not even CNN comes close to how biased Fox News is.

Then kids just don't have to vote, duh people have some common sense

9 Kids will base their political opinion off of unreliable sources

Trust me, as much as I loved to vote when I was 10, I am afraid that other people of my age back then would easily be brainwashed by other people, especially schools.

Never use wikipedia or yahoo answers to vote kids! - Skullkid755

Like memes and jokes - Batmaniscole

10 Kids don't have authority everywhere else in life

I can stay up until 8

The Contenders

11 Kids can be brainwash to vote for one party opinion

Parents can force kids.

True

nope

nope

12 Kids are kids, let them be kids until they can't be kids

Then explain Trump.

13 It will increase the population because grown ups will want to have more kids so they have more votes on their side

true

true"

true

14 Kids won't even know anything about politics

True only because kids are still learning in school and have not finished learning about polotics

15 Kids won't even care about politics and vote anyway
16 They could be deceived into going right wing
17 They could be deceived into going left wing

Has anybody seen vice's new documentary called 'raised without gender'?

18 They should be carefree and happy without the weight of life on their shoulders whilst they can
19 They don't know what is good and what is bad.

Children or young adults may not know what reasons are good and what reasons are bad in an election. For example:Someone might say "I'm getting rid of this park to make more houses." A child may think that is good but in ways for the environment it is bad.
(I am 11 by the way)
