    I know this will never happen. But I am 20. And 75% of the people my age should not be allowed to vote. They have no clue about the candidates. They have no clue about the issues. They have no idea what they're voting for. They vote with their @$$. I don't like this.

    If you are considered mature enough to join the military and put your life on the line for the country at 18 then you are old enough to vote.

    It isn't as much age as knowledge. Idk. Its an unfixable issue.

    Would you settle for a qualifying written test?

    If an intelligence test was necessary for voting we would have very low turn out on election day.
