Should kids vote at 14?
Well, I'm 14, and I feel I could have a valuable input if I were to vote, as would many other kids my age that I know. But I also know a great deal of 14 year olds who wouldn't even know what the voting system was, let alone have enough information to cast a sensiable and worthwhile vote. It all comes down to how mature the individual is. In my opinion, many 18 year olds don't deserve to vote either.
I felt like I should be able to vote when I was 14, but I was very into polictics and studied the candidates and parties in Canada. But in the end, no, they should not. 14 year olds are not in touch with the reality of life and in general, not going to take it seriously. Although there are people at 14 and up who may, the majority will not have an educated enough decision to vote.
Even though teenagers have strongly held opinions, they seem to change daily. I chalk this up to the gallons of hormones and other exotic chemicals coursing through their bloodstream as they make that long, arduous climb up Mt. Adulthood. Unfortunately, most of them live at home, don't pay taxes, and work as if a job were an extracurricular activity. No, they should not vote.
Honestly I dont think so because firstly there would be to many people voting and if you think about having a preteen vote sort of makes politics a joke. I think 18 is perfect because your coming right out of high school about to become a responsible adult. So no kids shouldnt vote.
no, there is significant scientific evidence that shows children at this age are not mentally capable to make these type of decisions. They are not tax payers, and they will have their chance when they get older.
There parents would just get an extra vote... no 13/14 year old would be capable of holding there own opinion... (most at least)
I agree, it's an absurd question. Kids at that age have no business voting.
the 18 year that aret mature enough to vote... dont.
Silly question. Of course not.
no, they shouldn't.
