The Top Ten
If kids could vote than we could change that and we could have more mature kids to vote and change that! Give us a chance to change!
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!
I disagree because only have of the country votes anyway. So what you are saying to me is a lie.
*Half* of the country is still well over 150 million people, you know that right? - yaygiants16
Someone said that they know the difference between 'they're' and 'there'?
I go to school and nobody in my class (except for a few people including me) knows the difference.
At least they're experienced to know the difference between 'they're' and 'there'.
Just imagine a very popular celebrity or music artist running for president. The last thing the us needs is a another celebrity president.
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.
Based on how long you can stay up doesn't matter. I'm 14 and I think that us kids can't make those decisions either - BecauseWhyNot
I can stay up until 9
That's just mean you sicko
I can stay up until 8
People under 18 are still a part of society and they we have political opinions too. Another reason why people under 18 should be able to vote is that they are supposed to follow the law but our opinions don't matter in making the law. Kids have the right to be heard and the kids are the future. One more reason why kids should be able to vote is that they have no say in what happens to the country they live in.
Marcus, you know you are not supposed to be on social media and it's past your bedtime! You are such an ignorant child.
- Marcus' mom
There's worse things for the economy than that But I agree with most of this list and I'm not a kid. - Cesium
Yes kids are stupid and should be protected cause we know how 3 year old act like 18 and know they will just choose the prettier comment
Parents can force kids.
Obviously, some patmrents can even abuse their child for that
Yeah, but so can adults.
This is pretty true
because they are immature and their brains aren't developed fully. Kids are just not resposible
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.

Children shouldn't vote, because most of them won't understand politics. But a lot of adults can't really handle the responsibility either. - LordDovahkiin
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
Then you don't really understand politics. Trump is better than all liberals. - LordDovahkiin
Voting law is bull maybe kids shouldn't vote but teens sure.
I agree with AnonymousChick. I'm 11; I have no maturity whatsoever.
Anonymous Chick: Here's ALL you need to know; you know absolutely NOTHING.
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
That's true and agree with that opinion
Politics rule -kj age 7
they have school and other things that they need to do
Definitely. You are always true.
YEAH GO JAMES CHARLES ILL VOTE FOR YOU OH YEAHH I LOVE YOU
Actually, that is not true. You know one reason people hesitated from letting women or African Americans vote. There "owners" or husbands can convince or force them to vote. Wouldn't you call that brainwashing? If you were alive in the 1800s you could have been saying a similar thing about women and African Americans. There is a reason why these people can vote now. The 19th amendment and people deserve equality in all aspects of society.
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
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.
Why do people keep trashing my wonderful list? Reasons like "Kids don't have authority anywhere else in life" and "kids will vote for politicians for the wrong reasons" are the reasons why I made that list! People need to understand that not ALL kids are immature, whiny crybabies without a care in the world. If I said every college student was a binge drinker who sleeps with someone new everyday, or that every middle-aged man was a pedo with a white van, ya'll would hate me. Kids CAN make a difference in the world, we just overlook it.
There was a point in time where whenever a woman did something big or noteworthy, then they'd be mocked for being "unladylike" or "damaging to society's structure". (I'm not trying to be feminist or anything, I just thought it was a good analogy to what we're talking about here.) Anyway, the point is, someone was tired of the crap they were getting and just decided to do something about it, whether taken literally or not. In conclusion, read the ...more - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Yes that's true.
Not true almost all kids are smarter then most adults
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)
Then explain Trump.
Whats this have to do with trump
I think they are saying that Trump is a bad president and that people who voted fo rhim are like kids. Just what I think - BecauseWhyNot
Who came up with this idea
Kids should know about politics, particularly because the government isn't doing very well. Three shutdowns in one year is insane, and Trump should be sent back to business. Children should vote because they will vote for someone they like and go against people they hate. But there's a major drawback-kids (based on student elections) are tempted towards rewards. Student candidates just want a longer recess (no possiblity, every district has a minimum of required instructional minutes), and that's what everyone wants. So kids would vote for the one who's gonna make America great again. Second, they would probably vote for their parents. For example, democrats would vote for democrat parents, and the same thing for republicans. If kids could vote, we could send Trump back to business in 2020 and have a long-overdue government reform, including the termination of the Second Amendment (based on Parkland).
One question, what does this have to do with trump?
True only because kids are still learning in school and have not finished learning about polotics
I understand politics quite well, thank you. - LordDovahkiin
This is the only one that is true.
Yes I totally agree
Why would anyone write this
True. We don't need another celebrity president.
Trump is awesome he helps the economy
The liberal media hates all the centrists who just happen to only platform conservatives and talk about their conservative beliefs. disgusting. my mom is in labour and I'm about to be aborted
Has anybody seen vice's new documentary called 'raised without gender'?
Some will. But if you're me or my friends, you read up on your choice, and listen to presidential speeches. - LordDovahkiin
Oof that is mean...
Kids will do what their parents say because they don't know what to do
I’m 10 and I would go the way I want to go
"Deceived? " The right is right. It's why it's called the Right Wing - LordDovahkiin
I'm 13 doing a school project
That's impossible anyway. Kids still go to school, despite it being useless. - LordDovahkiin
kid don't need homework
Ouf, that hurts I'm 9
Yes we do
My parents are ded
Lol, we have a project and we need to do five subjects that are listed for it and this is my first one, why kids shouldn't be allowed to vote.
NO NO NO!
They do exactly that with adults too!
Maybe a test could be taken to see if a kid can qualify to do such? Maybe the test could confirm what position the kid can vote for.
It's true though, we do... it's not fun being the only one to raise your hand when voting on a group name.
