The voting age should be lowered to 13

The voting age should be lowered to 13 because it will increase voting turnout, if 13 year olds have to pay taxes on store bought items, and 13 year olds will vote smart. That is how lowering the voting age will be worth it.

There Will be more votes to count on to elect someone. This reason helps explain how that 13 year olds voting will increase the voter turnout.
