    As another commentator said, at 18, can join the military and fight for your country. That alone should give you the right to vote.

    No we should not. 18 year olds work, they have jobs. Voting does effect there lives.

    Read the 21st (or 18th) amendment.  It explains why 18 year olds have a right to vote.

    Also, a 21 year old is JUST AS LIKELY to vote for the same candidate as say a 10 year old would (if they hypothetically were able to vote).

    Why don't you go the whole hog and only allow registered Republican's to vote?

    Voter suppression is nothing new... let's go with only those who follow "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America... can vote... all the thumbs down just show they don't care about the constitution

    18 is a good age. If you are old enough to go fight for your country, you are old enough to vote for your own representation.

    I'm open to limiting who is eligible to vote by requiring proof of relevant knowledge. There are genius 14 yr. olds who are more educated/qualified to vote than age 21. In fact, there are 40 yr olds who shouldn't be eligible to vote if you want to get technical.18 became the number because that's the age gov was drafting into military service. It's a volunteer army now. Require a voting license.
