Yes, more young people sould gain suffrage. Since the voters are young, there should be more interest at the instruction of political education in social studies classes. Educating youth about politics is nesscessary for the for them to effectively use their consciousness to make logical, learned political decisions. Thus, the result of political education in our schools will teach the important civic virtue of democracy in both political and non-political livelihoods to maturing young people.

Yes, kids under 18 should be aloud to take a non-partisan objective test for the right to vote

@9JPGQ9MTranshumanist from Arizona answered…2yrs

Make the legal age for everything the same. Smoking, drinking, marriage, military, voting, etc.

@9JL24C2Green from Michigan answered…2yrs

Yes, but a non biased test of political competency should be required

@9JC8CZZSocialist from Florida answered…2yrs

Either no one under 18 has to pay taxes, or anyone old enough to work is old enough to vote.

@9J96T4CGreen from Iowa answered…2yrs

Yes, but all voters should pass a basic test demonstrating an understanding of politics; those who do not pass should be counted as a fraction of a vote.

@nowutSocialist from Georgia disagreed…1yr

Yes Yes, any citizen that pays taxes should be allowed to vote No, and voters should be required to pass a basic test demonstrating their understanding of politics in order to vote

voters should pass a basic test demonstrating an understanding of politics; those who do not pass should be counted as a fraction of a vote.

Holy 3/5ths compromise, Batman! Seriously though, civic tests were a hallmark of the Jim Crow era and were used to reject Black and poor votes. It is now completely illegal to test voters. Requiring a passed test is voter suppression.

Eliminate the age requirement but have a basic test demonstrating their understanding of politics in order to vote

@nowutSocialist from Georgia disagreed…1yr

Yes Yes, any citizen that pays taxes should be allowed to vote No, and voters should be required to pass a basic test demonstrating their understanding of politics in order to vote

It's disconcerting to see both left and right leaning people actively asking for voter suppression "intelligence" tests similar to the Jim Crow era. I don't agree with a fair portion of the population but I want them to vote.

@9HY8R44Peace and Freedom from Oklahoma answered…2yrs

Yes but we need to change high school government classes to educate student with no bias facts about elections.

@9HX3GLFDemocrat from Texas answered…2yrs

Yes, it should be when you get your driver's license before November 8th.

@9HV8H2WGreen from South Carolina answered…2yrs

@9HSMM86Socialist from Washington answered…2yrs

No, but citizens should be allowed to participate in primaries if they will be 18 by the general election

@9HRTCMYWorking Family from California answered…2yrs

Only if we're also lowering the age of consent, age for a driver's license, age to get tattoos and abortions without parental permission, age of marriage without parental permission, full time work age, and basically everything else.

@9HQN5DHVeteran from Florida answered…2yrs

No but they should be required to show they filled taxes for the year prior

@9HPSR3WPeace and Freedom from California answered…2yrs

Yes, but make sure those under 18 have a basic understanding of politics and the political game

@9HMTJXZRepublican from New York answered…2yrs

You people make poor decisions as reflected in the overwhelming percentage of democrats in their teens and early 20s. Therefore I support raising the voting age.

@9HCJTKKWomen’s Equality from California answered…2yrs

No, but only because it would result in the lowering of other age limits such as the age of consent.

@9HB24HPRepublican from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

No, 18 is a good age to make sure you are educated in political issues and you are old enough to form your own opinions

@9H96PRPSocialist from Ohio answered…2yrs

@9H69N24Veteran from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

Yes and the younger voter should be able to show their understanding of politics to be able to vote

@Rayz8898Democrat from Maryland answered…2yrs

Yes, in fact, there should not be a voting age, a person should be able to vote as long as an individual shows that they have a good understanding of politics in school and can express their individual views. Voting should not discriminate people of different ages just like they shouldn't discriminate people of different genders and ethnicity.

@9H5R54KPeace and Freedom from Minnesota answered…2yrs

No, and anyone below voting age should not be required to pay income taxes

@Dakota-MillsVeteran from North Carolina answered…2yrs

If the minimum voting is age is lowes so should the drinking age and smoking age. If one is responsible enough to vote at a young to decide leaders of the country they are responsible enough to drink.

@9H2PHSXTranshumanist from Michigan answered…2yrs

Yes, I think it should be at age 16 but you have to take a test to insure you have the knowledge you need to make a reasonable Vote. But at age 18 it is automatic without the test.

@Dinunzio98Transhumanist from Georgia answered…2yrs

No, it should be increased to 21. If you can’t buy alcohol or cigarettes till that age then you shouldn’t be able to vote till then.

@9GY98PQWorking Family from Illinois answered…2yrs

No, and there should be one age where you can enlist, vote, sign a contract, drink/smoke, purchase a fire arm, etc.

@9GXSML4Women’s Equality from New York answered…2yrs

Yes to the age of 17 so more high school aged students can better be represented

@9GXDQWZRepublican from Utah answered…2yrs

No, it should be raised and voting should be restricted to land owners.

@9GXBMV8Green from New York answered…2yrs

Anybody who pays taxes (ie. has an income that is taxed) should have the right to vote; if they refuse to lower the voting age then anyone under the voting age should be tax-exempt (with laws in place to prevent fraud of that system, such as a millionaire parent claiming all that money was their child’s income).

@9GV3NZGWorking Family from Minnesota answered…2yrs

Call me crazy if you want. If 13 year olds know enough about politics they should be able to vote

@9GTK5J6Green from Kansas answered…2yrs

Everything should just be one age, whether it’s voting, smoking, drinking.

@9GR5ZV6Working Family from New York answered…2yrs

Yes, to 16 when students are learning about the importance of voting in school and will likely become lifelong voters.

@9GPYJCNSocialist from West Virginia answered…2yrs

Any citizen that holds a job that has taxes deducted from their paycheck should be eligible to vote. Ergo, anyone as young as 15 in America should be eligible to vote in any election.

@9GPBQFWPeace and Freedom from New York answered…2yrs

Yes, but no lower than 16 and civics should be added to the Common Core.
