In Maine, people can drive legally at age 15, be tried as adults for crimes committed at 16, have abortions at any age without parental consent, and get married at 16, or even younger with the approval of a parent and a judge. Curfew laws prohibit children under 18 from being out on the street, don't allow them to have consensual sex with anyone five years older or more until 16, and don't permit them to drink until they are 21. In this essay, author Edgar Allen Beem argues that children should have the right to vote.
