Question: (first off, sorry if you've seen this before! I need more responses - preferable 30 more by Friday) Hello everyone! I am doing a project for my class and would love a wide variety of input in regards to political knowledge across the country. If you could take the time to answer my survey I would love it! Thanks so much :D Oh, in case anyone was wondering - I'm doing a project advocating lowering the voting age. Going to crunch the numbers and see if teenagers perhaps know more about politics than adults do :) http://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?... Thank you very much for your time!

I am under age but I study government a lot and I know who I support and the reasons why, I know my opinions on political issues and I get into my families political battles (they're pretty epic) so I guess I know enough to vote. However my answer is no, I think even for myself i should have more experience and be living on my own first.

NO! if anything it needs to be raised, but that wouldn't be right since people should be able to vote if they are able to fight for this country the law should be changed back to only allowing property owners to vote, for me that would have meant that I would not have been able to vote till I was 21 and I am fine with that *I live in So Cal, I bought a $530K house when I was still in college, it just goes to show that anyone who is responsible and who is willing to put in some work and save their money can buy a house, in the 7 years since I have bought 3 other houses, by owning property one has shown that they have at least some stake in what happens in the country

Sorry but the politics you know is the indoctrination you learn in school from liberal teachers. Perhaps I am wrong and you are incredibly smart, if so you have read the constitution. To modify the law will require a constitutional amendment. So if you are serious you need to start with the amendment process.

NO, because at under age 18 you have not really experienced real life yet, ie: jobs, bills, taxes taking care of yourself, nor does one so young understand these things, how could one so young understand if they live in parents home, parents support them and pay for everything? They really dont understand where the money is really comming from to pay for things they think government should pay for,

Absolutely not. Teens are students, with no real world experience, and too easily influenced by the political biases of their instructors. They are not mature or responsible enough to make a real educated decision.

Research shows the 70% of the time, the candidate with the most honest face wins - regardless of what they are running for.
