    The 26th amendment states "The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age. The Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

    It clearly states voting is a right protected under the Constitution. The amendment obviously deals with voting age, however its wording "The right of the Citizens of the United States... to vote" is clear as day.

    No sir, it does not. It prevents the least likely, and least effective facet of voter fraud.

    The 26th amendment only prevents states and the federal government from setting a voting age higher than 18.

    I really don't want to go over this AGAIN... Just show me where in the constitution it states that voting is the right of every citizen?

    It's almost like you Lefty's want illegals to vote.

    It doesn't specifically say that, however when you combine all the provision that prevent voter discrimination what you are left with is no different. The Constitution makes several reference to the right of the citizens to vote, but that doesn't count for you?

    The constitution does not specify that voting is a citizens right. If it did, then states couldn't deny voting to convicted felons.

    States have always been allowed to put certain rules and restrictions on voting. All the constitution does is state the methods that States can not use to restrict voting, in order to prevent discimination.

    Voting is now and always has been a priviledge, not a right.

    That's the only conclusion that makes any logical sense.

    The Constitution states firearm ownership as a right, yet we can restrict that as well. Simply being able to restrict doesn't mean something isn't a right.

    What has a biggest impact on getting the actual voter demographic...less than a HUNDRED THOUSANDTH of a percent of voter fraud or hundreds of thousands of disfranchised voters.
    Its almost as if you want to disenfranchise voters...

    Not wanting to disenfranchise thousands of people to catch 5 or 6 doesn't make sense?
