You are 16, you’re are beautiful and you are a voter:
In the article “you are 16, you’re are beautiful and you are a voter” the writer “Kamenetz” is trying to state that the government should lower the voting age to 16 years. She argues that young people who smoke, drink, and can get a credit card, should be given the chance to vote. She believes that giving this right to young people will make them think more serious. She also thinks that this in a way will improve the sense of responsibility inside them toward their future’s decisions.
The author used some points to support her idea about lowering the voting age to sixteen. For example, she mentioned that young people especially the ones who work have the right to get credit cards. She also indicated that teenagers can get their driving permit at the age of sixteen as well. Another point the author went through was teenagers who want to vote should pass a civics course in order to get a permit to vote. In other words, she is trying to say that teenagers and young people who can do and get the things that I mentioned earlier, should get the chance to give their views and to participate in elections.
