Why is it possible for the state to make a law that says a citizen must be 18 years old to vote?

States have the right to set any age limit for voting except an age over 18 years. Under the Twenty Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution, no state may deny or abridge the right of a person eighteen years of age the right to vote on account of age. States determine what the age of majority for its citizens should be and may grant them certain privileges regardless of the age of majority. Examples are that most states allow people to drive motor vehicles before a person turns eighteen years old, while they also prohibit drinking alcoholic beverages even after a person turns eighteen. Presumably, a state could allow a person under eighteen to vote, but they can't prohibit a person eighteen or over the right to vote.

Marriage is a contract between two people. The law has long held that anyone under the age of majority is not able to contract, not having a full understanding or appreciation of the consequences. Therefore, to get married under the age of 18 requires parental consent. Not all states allow this and most say you have to be at least 16 to get married, even with consent. Some states allow younger marriages, but require a court order to validate that there is no coercion or 'selling' of young girls into marriage/slavery.
