The case for changing the voting age to 0 https://t.co/QjlyTAKEi5

Well, let’s do them one better: The United States should consider eradicating the voting age entirely and letting every American citizen who can successfully fill out a ballot be counted in our local, state, and national elections (and yes, this goes for felons too).
My colleague Matt Yglesias made the case for this four years ago. Since then, it’s only become more apparent that our current system is failing kids — and that they’re competent to fight for a better one.
Enfranchising the last 75 million American citizens is the right thing to do, and there’s some evidence suggesting it’ll lead to a more engaged, more informed electorate that can at last do right by some of its most vulnerable constituents.
Note, if these yahoos thought for one minute this would help Republicans they would NEVER, ever push for it. Sort of like how they were AOK with the Electoral College until their team lost.
Cool, when the Duggar family from 19 Kids and Counting have outsize influence, you'll be Electoral College supporters in no time. https://t.co/0uMbEsSrq7

Maybe just make children 3/5 of a vote, in case the S. States decide to have more children. Hopefully kids everywhere will also vote to eliminate drinking age and child labor laws, modify school curriculums, or elect a 5th grader to Congress. Sounds great!
