What would you think if the minimum age for voting was brought down to 16. Do you think it would benefit the people or the politicians more?. Do you encourage that it is brought down, stay the same or raised. And why?

I believe it is fine where it is now . I don't see any reasons in changing the age limit . Many teenagers are not into politics anyway and they only have to wait 2 more years to vote if they want to start at 16 . I don't see how this would benefit the politicians anymore and they don't need any more support as it is because I feel that if you know one politician you know them all . They just fill us full of lies about what they will do if they are voted in and then never do half of what they say !!

Hi there Pickles! That is already implemented here in the Philippines. I think it starts at the age of fifteen but that is only for the SK, the government for the youth in every barangay.
