Many and lower the age of voting

Many helpful solutions may be offered to individuals that are 16 years old. Before changing the voting age we should focus on teaching kids politics from young age so they can have their own personal view on the topic, rather then recalling their parents view on the election and who should be elected. Canada can also focus more on the youth and have more youth platforms when candidates run for prime ministers so the youth can have more interest on the individual and inverse their own thought on the platform. Many teenagers don’t care about politics for one reason, candidates don’t focus on the youth and their interests rather they focus on the older community because they know those are the ones who will be voting for them and not the teenagers. For example when Justin Trudeau introduced the legalisation of marijuana platform many teenagers shared the news with their friends and on social media and that’s how he got so much attention, teenagers have lots of power on social media. If 16 years old want to change the voting age they should be ready for laws to be lowered as well, and many people would agree with that. Today lowering the voting age continues to have a wide range of support as well as disagreements. Nearly half of US states have seen legislative states to attempt and lower the age of voting to sixteen. Internationally 25 countries have lowered their voting age to sixteen. Sixteen-year-olds are mature enough to make important decisions such as voting. Their bodies are fully adult, they have been educated for at least ten years, and most of them have some experience of work as well as school. All this allows them to form political views and they should be allowed to put these at election time. Canada has many support groups that are working on lowering our voting age, the main provinces that are said to lower their voting age to 16 are New Brunswick in the year of 2020 and PEI in the year of 2020.
