Amendment Proposal For my Constitutional Amendment proposal I have chosen to make a notion to revamp the 26th Amendment on voting age My opinion is that the minimum voting age should be lowered to the age of sixteen This proposed bill would have to first be taken in front of Congress to allow them a vote If it two-thirds of Congress voted in favor of the bill it would then move to the House of Representatives Here it would have to have the same success as in the congress to be passed as an amendment In essence the bill must be approved by three-fourths of the states or it will not be passed It also has to be passed in a certain amount of time or it will be dropped This period is usually less then seven years There are a few reasons that I would like to propose this new amendment to modify the 26th amendment First in todays present society it has not been uncommon for children as early as thirteen years old have been tried as adults Now this may not seem like a double standard but my second point may be rather my conclusive Youth as young as fourteen years of age can get employment in present day America Now apart of this job naturally is the pay check and as law the law requires a portion of the pay must be given to the government in the form of taxes So if a young man work for four years from the age of fourteen on he will pay that much money to the government for leaders to spend on that he has not even voted for In my opinion this far from just No I do not believe that voting age should be fourteen but sixteen also the same age in most states that driving is legal for this age seems very reasonable to make our society more
