    A long time ago, people are legally an adult by 16, I am not sure whether they were allow to vote.  I think 17 should be a good age, to allow to vote, 21 till run for congress, 30 to run for governor and senate and over 50 to run President

      Of course...to age 16.  But then I would go further and allow everyone with a social security number to vote via the www for national elections.  And I have other ideas to enhance our democratic voting...from an 80+ yr old...born in the US of A.

    No - School aged Americans are too easily influenced by their school environment and teachers.  I do think you should have to show ID to vote.
