Austria will allow 16-year-olds to vote FROM MSNBC

"VIENNA, Austria - For her birthday, Nina Stanke gets 16 candles — and one vote.

Austria makes history in the European Union on Sunday by becoming the first member of the 27-nation bloc to give 16-year-olds a voice in national elections. And Stanke, one of up to 200,000 eligible Austrian teenagers, isn't about to pass up this opportunity."

It is never too early to start learning how corrupt the political process is. The sooner a voter becomes disaffected with the major political parties (in virtually all countries), the sooner he or she will start looking seriously at third party alternatives.
