    Nic’s argument isn’t so much a case for lowering the voting age as it is a justification for not panicking if (when?) the voting age is lowered. He may be right about youthful apathy, of course, but “law x won’t make a difference” is hardly a reason to pass law x.

    Besides, social media already allows children — or would-be children — to wield disproportionate influence over politics.

    Count me as a crank. I want the voting aged raised back to 25 and a requirement that you have a net worth of at least $100,000.
