I will be 18 five days after election day. Is there any kind of law (in Connecticut or federally) that will allow me to vote this year?

Or am I shit outta luck for another 2 years?

You're not smart enough to vote until 5 days after election day, they know this through extensive research.

As long as you're 18 on voting day and you're registered to vote, you can do so. So, you're screwed for another two years.

Well obviously you aren't intelligent enough to make an informed decision until the exact day of your 18th birthday so you'll have to wait.

Actually, true. The voting age should probably be higher. Most people my age (20) are still extremely immature, have a limited understanding of how the world works, pay no attention to political issues or have even a moderate knowledge of them, yet they still vote. The latter half of that sentence is true for all age groups, but it seems to be particularly common with young people.

I would forfeit my right to vote for the time being, if it would stop all of those other people for voting until they were more mature.

Or rather than limiting voting to age, have voters pass some kind of simple 'voter competency test' or IQ test when registering. Just because someone else my age is too stupid to vote doesn't mean you should take away MY rights.

Considering that you're a teabagger and a Glenn Beck fan, it's probably better that you're forced to wait two years to be allowed to vote.

Seeing as you're 17 and live in a town in Connecticut that is 95% white and probably only has like 4% of the population living in poverty, you probably know f*ck all about how the world actually works. People like you are a danger to our democracy because they insist on being allowed to vote on things that they know nothing about.

^I would like that soooo much. Like a test at the polling place. If you don't know the platform of the candidates, you can't vote.

People like you are morons for stereotyping. And it's not a democracy, it's a republic. In a republic, the people elect representatives to go to D.C for them. In a democracy, the people vote on everything directly.

Exactly. They should have it so when you turn 16 or something you can take a test to apply for a voting license, and you'd have to renew it every election. Keep the dumbasses from voting.

Youre shit out of luck. Even if you turned 18 the day before election day you still wouldnt be able to vote. You need to register to vote first, silly goose.

My advice? Register to vote now ahead of time. Not that it would help you in particular. Youre just bad timing. Go yell at your parents for not having sex 5 days earlier..I danno ?

They used to have this, and a poll tax. Many places used it to keep the poor and uneducated from voting, mainly blacks. Voting Rights Act got rid of these.

And what makes that different from "more prepared and capable people" taking the right away from the idiots? Fucking dipshit.

Guys, can we not argue this right now? I personally think Glenn's a nutcase and I find the tea party movement horrendously annoying, but the TS wants to know if he can vote this year, and he's entitled to regardless of what we think of his opinion, and in the US, he's entitled to voice his opinion and make a decision based on it. Don't be an ass just because he disagrees with you, alright?

Anyway, I know that for 2008 at least, there was a law here that if you would be old enough to vote in the November poll for the actual election, then you could vote in the primaries even if you weren't 18 years old. Not sure what's-what, but call up your local representative; this is a big day for them, and 2000 and 2004 proved every vote counts, so there's a chance they'll personally check the books.

I believe this is false. You can register before you're 18 as long as you will be 18 on election day. If I'm wrong, feel free to prove it.

No, he shouldn't be allowed to vote because the Tea Party (and Glenn Beck, for that matter) is an embarrassment to this country. Being proud of the fact that you believe in conspiracy theories is f*cking backwards. It doesn't help that teabaggers align themselves with the religious right, who try to legislate morality.

I'm ashamed to be somewhat conservative because such idiots have a platform to speak. The First Amendment means you can say things, and I would die before that right is taken away from you. It does not mean that you can ignore facts or be immune from insult for doing so. That's beauty of equal protection under the law.

I don't and I'm not religious, but I do lean right. And if you went to a tea party, maybe you would see that there are all kinds of people there, even though a good piece may be right leaning whites.
