16 candles all you need on your cake to vote in Argentina11/1/2012
Rocking the vote or rocking the cradle? Argentina has joined a handful of other Latin American nations and lowered its voting age to 16, and if it seems like an earnest gesture to get young people more politically engaged, it's also being painted as Machiavellian maneuvering. President Cristina Fernandez, who polls well among teens, would need a constitutional change to run for a third term next year, and younger voters could lead to more members of her Victory Front coalition being elected to affect that. Still, getting the kids to the polls might be problematic: under-18 voting will be optional, while it remains compulsory for those 18-70. Compulsory? Did you hear that America? [Source]
