21 if you are the age of 18 or younger and you have a good job and you are smart, you would have the same exact right to vote if you were 16 or if you were 18

The right to drive at 16 is under aged also I wrote this and I am a kid so quit picking on me

You obviously have no good points, so you attacked his/her grammar instead. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

22 Everyone's opinion matters
23 Kids may be 20% of our population but they are 100% of our future. So they need to have a voice in their own future. Everyone has the right to make their own choices.


This doesn't make sence

24 Some people are under 18 and very responsible

Most people are smart and make a positive result to the country

25 Kids are responsible enough.


26 Kids are smarter than adults

Schools are becoming more advanced and teaching their students skills only professionals could master therefore adults are gonna be baffled by what their kids could do! - pineliek

Actually adults are smarter because they learnt more. - AlphaQ


Let say a kid would vote who would he or she vote they would vote for what peaple say about them.unless they read true and positve facts also a kids brain could take more information than an adult

27 Kids are the future generation

I agree we are the future they are the past and we will see more technilogical things so we should get to vote

28 Kids could get more education and could decide who they want as there leader to lead them through war and hard times

Well kids should be able to vote

29 Kids can think creatively

Kids can think of ways to do things that adults think are unrealistic. However, the solution is a good one it would just take work which most adults are afraid of!

30 Kids are smarter than you think they have abilities that adults don't have.
31 Kids are not as biased

Kids are less likely to discriminate against immigrants, gays etc. Have generally neutral views on abortion and will not just vote for a moron, just because he/she is of a certain party. Kids can become informed on issues, an unbiasedly pick the better of two evils. And they would not be as likely to just pick someone because they are 'Democrat' or 'Republican'. Also they would be looking more to the future than the past; most of them weren't even born. So what candidates did in the past, would not be such a big concern to them. They are more likely to vote third party if they believe it is better for the country.

That is true

32 It's a free country and everyone no matter what age should be able to vote


33 Kids' opinion is important to make the country a better place.
34 Kids don't have a lot of political experience but neither do most adults
35 We are mature enough to vote
36 Kids are the next generation
37 Some kids are smart enough to vote
