What would you like to do?
Do you have to be 18 to vote in Israel?
Women have always had the right to vote ever since Israel's independence in 1948.
I am sure it is yes!
The 33 countries that cast the "Yes" vote were: Australia, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Byelorussia, Canada, Costa Rica, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Fra…nce, Guatemala, Haiti, Iceland, Liberia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Sweden, Ukraine, Union of South Africa, USSR, USA, Uruguay, Venezuela. (Among other countries, the list includes the US, the three British Dominions, all the European countries except for Greece and the UK, but including all the Soviet-block countries.)
only the Citizens, at least 18 years old may vote. (That includes Jewish men and women who are citizens, Muslim men and women who are citizens, Christian men and women who… are citizens, Druze men and women who are citizens, Arab/Palestinian men and women who are citizens. But the law is very restrictive ... they have to be 18 years old.)
Responsibilities and privileges in Israel are defined in accordance with citizenship, not by religion. Arabs ... Muslim, Christian, and Druze ... comprise a significant frac…tion of the country's citizenry. As citizens, they have the vote. I don't have numbers available at the moment, but the numbers must certainly be significant, since there are all-Arab towns in Israel's north, Muslim Arabs have stood for office in the nation's general elections, and have been elected to the Knesset (parliament) to represent their Muslim Arab constituents. While we're on the subject, it must also be mentioned that Palestinian Arabs ... who are not even citizens of Israel ... have brought suit in Israeli courts against the Israeli government's planned route for the security fence/wall, asking that the route be changed to prevent their loss of access to their family land and crops. And have won their case ! I know that a supervisor is going to come along and delete this last remark, but I just have to put it here for as long as it survives. The remark is: Let's see a Jew try something like that in a Palestinian court !
Women have had the vote since Israel's independence in 1948. So have Arab / Palestinian citizens of Israel, including men and women.
It needs to be clarified that the vote occurred in 1947 (not 1948) and was not about voting for or against Israel. The United Nations Vote was about the validity and binding n…ature of UN Resolution 181, which was the United Nations Partition Plan. The Partition Plan gave legitimacy to both the establishment of a Jewish State and an Arab State. The Jews eventually used this legitimacy to declare the Independence of the State of Israel, but there has never been a referendum on Israel's legality. The vote passed the required two-thirds mark to have binding effect, which means that it serves as a viable international treaty for all United Nations members. The vote came down (For-Against-Abstaining-Absent) as 33-13-10-1, 72%-28%. (Abstentions and Absentia do not affect percentages.)

Not in most (if any) United States precincts. The voting age in the US was twenty-one until 1972.
If the children voted, they may make the wrong decision and the person they vote for may turn the area into a disaster if that person is elected. When you are 18, you will und…erstand who and why you are voting for that person.
voting starts at the age 18 because they are considered mature, responsible and can related to laws and voting for an official to run certain parts of the world.
On July 7, 1971, the voting age became 18 when the 26th amendment to the US constitution was certified as having been ratified.
You must be referring to the November 1947 UN resolution to partition part of the lands of the Middle East that the British were about to vacate, with one portion to be ad…ministered by the local Arab authorities, and the other part by the local Jewish authorities. That resolution passed in the UN General Assembly by a majority vote of the UN members at that time. The list of countries can be found on line. It was not a vote "for Israel to become a country". The leaders of Israel did that, six months later, as soon the administration of the Jewish partition passed to them from the British.
Well if there was no teens voting then wouldn't the younger people not get a say and then that would make lots of teens like myself mad.
