In my opinion….By Ace Roxburgh, Grade 10Phoenix ProgramI think that the voting age should be lowered because the election is about the future leader and the welfare of our country. The youth should have a say in who will be the leader; furthermore, voters should be fully aware of the candidate’s past, goals, and values. Personally I think no one person should lead the land by himself. A coalition government should exist, a group of leaders, one from each political party to advise and “fine tune” their decisions. This would be much better because it would be multiple opinions that gradually become a decision that would better the country.I am 15 years old and have been interested in politics for about 3 years now and it’s a shame that so many kids my age are so unaware about this country’s affairs. Politics should be taught in school early on so the youth of today and tomorrow will be more interested in this country, and would want to provide their time to benefit it. I think if more kids knew they had a choice to help change their futures through understanding politics, they would be more likely to vote when they became of age.
