Should children be given the vote? Watch this TEDx talk.

June 2, 2013

I have offered a couple of posts on Demeny Voting, a way of recognizing that children have the right to vote. This post describes the scheme, which involves giving parents a proxy vote for each child under their guardianship. Chrystia Freeland recently wrote about this idea and its impact on inequality in The New York Times, and I offered another post with the text of my TEDx talk given in March 2013. Here for your interest is the video of that talk, very capably produced and edited by the team at TEDxWaterloo. As always, comments are welcome.
