Andrew Yang proposes lowering voting age to 16

Democratic presidential hopeful and entrepreneur Andrew Yang on Wednesday proposed lowering the federal voting age to 16. In a more detailed explanation of the proposal, Yang gave three reasons to lower the voting age: increasing turnout, the unfairness of taxing young voters without representation and promotion of civic engagement.

I’m with ya on the pot issue, but lowering the voting age is idiotic. I really hope people hop off that train.

Well I can see why he wants to lower the age to 16, considering it appears that he is running on a class president's script.

I’ve listened to him talk on JRE and think he has some good ideas but lowering the voting age isn’t the best idea. Looking around myself at 27 and seeing my peers and older peps convinced by blatant propaganda. I think at 16 you’re quite a bit more ignorant. That said there isn’t much gap to 18 and maybe they should raise the voting age. Lol. They say your brain is fully developed at 25 sooooooo..... Then again if you can choose to go over seas to die for America’s political squabbles then you should be able to vote.

If anything, the voting age should be raised to about 30. 16 year olds these days are like small children.

As the mom of an 18, 16, and 15 year old, I can’t believe this is a serious suggestion.

I agree marijuana should be legalized, but it should have stricter controls than alcohol. There’s no such thing as secondhand drunk, except for maybe in breastfeeding children
