Kids should be able to vote at 13!
By: Walker A.
Kids will get involved with politics at a young age!
Getting involved with politics at a young age is important because you could learn about real life situations. This would be good because when your older you know how to handle certain situations with politics. If you get involved with politics young you'll know whats good and bad.
Voter turnout would be increased!
Only about 50% of Americans under the age of 25 vote in elections! So, we need more people under the age of 25 to vote. Studies have proven that if you vote younger your more likely to vote when your older. This would help increase voter turnout.
Finally, most all countries in the world have people vote under the age of 18!
We need to keep up and lower the voting age! Were suppose to be the best country so in order to be the best we must keep up with other countries. There are some kids that pay taxes before that's not fair! They pay an estimated total of 10 million dollars a year before they are allowed to vote!
In conclusion you should vote at age 13!
My reasons are Kids need to learn about politics, studies show the younger you vote the more likely you are to vote when your older, and most other countries vote under 18! So, lets work together and lower the voting age to thirteen.
