  1. What age do you think should be the minimum age to vote ? Having no minimum voting age would be inappropriate and absurd. Very young children lack the the appropriate amount of sound judgement to be enfranchised. Please e-mail me back at your earliest chance. Thank you.

    1. Yes, as this post states, I do believe in eliminating the voting age entirely. However, I do not need to argue this point; instead, I’ll refer you to others who’ve written about the need for this eloquently and powerfully:

      * Kevin Wordelman on
      * Katrina Moncure in “Who Gets to Vote?”
      * Duncan Lindsey in “Why Children Should Have a Vote”

      Here is a great collection of resources on the topic. Finally, for an essential dramatic argument for eliminating the voting age, watch this.
