The lowering the voting age thing has some legs here in Colorado. It came up after the 2016 elections, & has following multiple elections since.

Now, the push is on to allow kids to vote on school board races & other educational ballot measures.
It's stupid. It's stupid as smurf. It's smurfing stupid.

This arbitrary age/number has gotten completely out of control and now it's politicized. Either you're an adult and can make AND BE HELD ACCOUTABLE FOR adult decisions at 16, or 18 or 21. Military service, alcohol, guns, voting, tried as an adult, driving age...

Arbitrary. And smurfing stupid.
