Can we trust 16 yr olds to vote, drink, and get married?

How old to vote?

Having seen a growing number of text, tweets, and Facebook posts talking about lowering the age to vote to 16, we decided to discuss this. How do you feel about this? Do you trust 16 year olds with you life and finances? Can someone with little or no life experience influence your freedoms and choices? Do you trust their unfinished basic education to be enough? We asked on Facebook Live, and we are asking again here. Please add your thoughts to the conversation on voting.
