Lowering the Voting Age
- Warwick, New York
- United States of America
Students are learning new material everyday and are fully capable of making their own decisions. There are various reasons as to why the voting age should be lowered:
**If 16-year-olds are allowed to drive a vehicle on the road, then they should be able to vote. There is no clear and present danger if a 16-year-old votes. It only gives a greater population the chance to voice their opinion and create a more democratic government.
**Teenagers are given adult responsibilities but are unable to vote like an adult.
**Some teenagers have jobs, which takes taxes out of their paychecks but they have no say as to where that money goes.
**Some teenagers are more intelligent than some of the adults that vote.
Please help support youth in lowering the voting age to 16. It could only help our country and our community if this is passed. Please take into consideration that teenagers have an opinion that wants to be voiced.
If you sign this petition, you will be helping to make a difference in our society and giving a right that youth have always been denied.
Thank you for your time and support.
