Children over the age of 15 should be allowed to vote.
In my opinion the children over the age of 15 should absolutely not be allowed to vote. This can be explained through the subsequent examples below. Firstly, the children over the age of 15 are not fully aware of the political parties and their manipulations for gaining the maximum number of voters to vote for them. For example, a child who has reached an age of 16 can be too young to understand that certain political parties who make various promises of providing good education and giving free laptops and other devices for students are often deceiving. They are too naive, especially the poor students who cannot afford education fall prey to this because they mostly think that getting a free laptop would enable them to study well because they can have an access to various sources of information on the internet. This is an important reason why the children below the age of 15 should not be allowed to vote. Secondly, the children over the age of 15 have various other choices that they have to make in order to establish a strong career for themselves to lead a good life in their future. For instance, the children of age 16 may have just completed their secondary education and have to choose a major they are interested in and have to graduate and gain a stable job to be financially secure. This is an important decision and they cannot be distracted by other trivial things which are not necessarily applicable to them in this age. This also plays a key role in determining why they the children over the age of 15 should not be allowed to vote. In conclusion, children are to be educated about the voting process from the young age of 15 so they can understand the process well when they reach the age of 18 when they officially become adults are are capable of making their own decisions. This will develop an understanding in them so as to decide to which party they can vote, which makes genuine promises and can completely fulfill the promises they have made.
