My name is Henric Williams. I am a 17 year old. It is my opinion that the voting age should be lowered to 16. I strongly believe at this age we are mature enough in our thinking to express our decisions through the voting process. Teenagers are allowed to have a driver's license at 16, which is a life altering, mature step. So, if we are allowed on the road with other drivers, why not entrust us enough to vote in this democracy. I missed this important election this year because I was 2 months away from turning 18. I was disheartened because I felt the government doesn't think I'm worthy enough to express my opinion. Please consider the aspect of changing the laws for future generations. I believe teenagers starting at the age of 16 are very conscientious of current affairs that effect the U.S. and globally. I wouldn't count us short on making informed decisions. We are a new generation of teenagers, that have had to endure more than teenagers of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Allow us the chance to have a voice. Thank you for time.
