How old do citizens have to be to vote for President?

Citizens have to be 18 or older to vote for president. In 1971, government leaders added the Twenty-sixth Amendment to the Constitution. They added this amendment because young people demanded the right to vote. The amendment changed the minimum voting age in the United States to 18. Now all citizens who are 18 years and older can vote for president.
