In many states teen are able to get a job and are able to drive, and must pay tax. But why are they not allowed to vote? Teens are very engaged in politics right now becuase it is a time where everyone is involved in everything. Countless people world wide are joining protest, contacting lawmakers, and sharing on social media about what they believe in. Just because teens are able to go to protest, does not mean they are ready to vote." Demostrating is not the same as voting, which requires a high level of civic responsibility and knowledge."
Most teens don't have basic understanding of how the government works, critics say. Less than hald of Amercian eighth-graders are profecient in civics. In addition research has found that young peoples brain fully develop at a later age than scientist had once though.Some states like Califonia are loweing ages to 16 and 17 years old. If they lower it tp 16 they will become the first majot U.S. city to lower its voting age to 16.
I personally think we should be able to vote because we are part of the U.S. and we are citizens and I think if we are able to pay taxes we should be able to vote. Also, I think if your 16 you are resposible enough to vote.
Would you vote in the upcoming election?
Do you think they should change the law?
