I think that the voting age was lowered to 18 in 1973 because when you turn 18 you are becoming an adult so you should have a say in what the country does, I do agree with this because it’s important that all adults have their say. Yes I believe I would be ready because I watch the news and by the time I am 18 I’m sure I’m sure I will have a better idea of what is going on in politics/country. I think that the voting age should remain at 18 because it encourages young adults to contribute to our beautiful country.
