    Should we lower the voting age?

    Washington, D.C. may lower the voting age for federal and local elections to 16. The legislation was introduced last Tuesday by D.C. council member Charles Allen (D-Ward 6), who said he was inspired by the high schoolers that came to D.C. to protest at the March for our lives.

    Some are making the argument that other states should follow suit.

    No.

    18 is a reasonable cut-off.

    This is a liberal wet dream.

    Children are much easier to indoctrinate.

    Just curious. What do you think of having a maximum voting age?

    No. I think kids should be kids. We did mock voting in highschool which properly prepared us... to stay home each election.

    The legal age to vote, drink and buy firearms should be the same.
