Where can 16-year-olds vote?

16- and 17-year-olds won't be able to vote in Tuesday's election. But if they really don't want to wait until 2016 to vote for a president, Argentinian citizenship is always an option.

Argentina just lowered its voting age to 16 ahead of 2013's presidential election. It follows Brazil, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Cuba in making the move. (Though how much your vote counts at any age in Cuba is another question.) Austria became the first European country to lower the voting age to 16 in 2008. 

Across the world, 18 is the general standard, though Indonesians can vote at 17 -- or even younger in some cases. 


Russian election chief: U.S. elections are undemocratic

Russian Central Election Comission chief Vladimir Churov -- nicknamed "the Magician" does not lack for chutzpah:

"The U.S. presidential election is not direct, not universal and not equal, and it does not safeguard the secrecy of voting," Churov, who heads Russia's Central Election Commission, wrote in the government newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta's online edition.

"The electoral system and electoral laws in the United States are far from perfect. They are contradictory, archaic and do not correspond to the democratic principles the United States has declared as the basis of its foreign and domestic politics."

Although he does likely share a distaste for OSCE observers with some American authorities.
