In California we are considering a law to let 14 year olds and up vote. (current voting age is 18) Votes from 14 and 15 years old people would only count as one quarter of a vote. Example: 4 votes from 14-year-olds equals one vote from a 20-year-old. Votes from people ages 17 and 18 would count as half a vote. What do you think about this? :deal:

foolish, honestly 14 year olds are not mature enough nor capable enough to fully understand most everything on the subject matter

Some are, probably not me, but I think some would be. I think it would be a nice law to pass but not for 14, maybe, umm, 15 or 16. Heh.

Well how many adults are actually 'aware enough' to vote?

also the votes being worth less for 18-19 year olds than 20+ is also something that should NOT be done. Basically it's saying that 18-19 year olds aren't worth as much as older people instead of being equal. and I say a big, gigantic, fat, Über no to 14-17 year olds voting. They won't vote for the person that deserves it, they'll vote for whoever they think is 'cool'.
