Above The Noise

Should 16-Year-Olds Be Allowed to Vote?

Season 3 Episode 7 | 5m 54s | Video has closed captioning.

When you turn 18, our society generally considers you an adult. You can join the military. You’re eligible for jury duty. And, of course, you gain the right to vote. However, you can get a job, pay taxes, and even be tried as an adult for some crimes at 16. Clearly, laws have an impact on nearly everyone well before they can cast their vote.
