At what age can my teenager vote?


Question: At what age can my teenager vote?
Answer: The 'voting age' in the United States is the age in which your teenager can begin participating in government elections. In most states, the age is 18-years-old. There are some states that allow a 17-year-old to participate in primary elections and caucuses if they will reach the age of 18 on or before election day.

A teen in the U.S. is able to register to vote in the year that they will turn 18. Voter registration forms can generally be found in your state department offices. Some states offer online registration, you can find a link your state website here.
