Should the legal voting age in the United States be lowered from 18 to 16? U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) thinks so.
This past week, Ellison tweeted: “Why shouldn’t 16-year-olds vote?” and “They can drive. Some have jobs. Let’s empower our youth.”
However, others on Twitter criticized the representative and the idea. Some said 16-year-olds aren't informed enough to vote, while others worried they would just base their votes on their parents' opinions—not their own.
