I think we should be allowed to vote at the age of 16, Because at 16, that is when we are making most of our big decisions anyway, and maybe if we got to vote, that would help. I mean, at 18, we graduate high school, live on our own, and have a little more knowlege, but Voting nowadays doesn't hardly any knowlege at all!

Funny thing to discuss in the UN.

Do want to note that a large share of the members are dictatorships and don't know the concept of voting at all :P

16 year olds voting now that is scary. Almost as insane as the idea that a 16 year old is smart enough to drive a car, make life choice, work for a living, or have reasonable thoughts. Wait those are all things that 16 year olds do as well or better then people twice their age. I will support this and encourage others to do so as well. If we are going to teach our 16 year olds about the workings of government in school, then lets let them participate in the real thing. :D

I heard that voting at 16 is being debated and could become a reality. in philopolis, 16 years olds are allowed to vote. hell, we're like the most tolerant people
