“Those of you that will be 21 by Nov. 12th, I ask for your support and your vote," Perry said to a crowd that included college students."Those of you who won't be, just work hard, because you are going to inherit this and you're counting on us to get this right. The idea that you're looking at a $15 trillion debt, that you're looking at entitlement programs that will not be there for you if we continue on this path, is not fair to you and it's not right.”
Wow... Just in case you missed it in school, Mr Perry, but in 1971, the 26th amendment was enacted which lowered the voting age from 21 to 18. And as far Election Day in the United States is the day set by law for the general elections of public officials. And remember voting occurs on the Tuesday after the first Monday in November. Now don't forget this, cause I think you're going to need all the votes you can get.
