The election is right around the corner and all around people are figuring out who is going to run their country best. Hearing people’s views on each of the candidates is very interesting, especially when different people bring up similar topics with different opinions. I was talking to my neighbor when he asked me if I had the choice to vote who would I vote for. This struck me as I did not realize how differently my opinion mattered in the election process. The opinions I have formed about each of the candidates really does not matter because of my age. Yes, of course, I am still entitled to my own opinions, but they do not go anywhere because I do not have the right to vote yet. I am curious as to why people who are just 3 years older than me can vote, yet I cannot. What is the difference between an 18 year old and a 16 year old? Does the 2-3 years of age truly impact someones ability to make a decision? 18 is the age where someone is legally allowed to fight for our country, so they should be allowed to vote at that age as well. But, if they could fight at any age, what do you think the proper age to start voting is? Why was 18 chosen to be the year that important decisions could be made? Is it young, old or just right?
