Why does the constitution require those who serve as president to be at least 35 years old; those serving as senate be 30 years old; and those serving in the house of representatives to be at least 25?

    Why do you think the Constitution includes these minimum ages?

  • gov -

    I think the constitution requires the president, house of representative, and senate to be at least these minimum ages is because that’s how long its takes from them to be qualified ( be involved in the politics and government areas). For example, they can be a mayor or a lawyer.

    Good thinking! We've also found that maturity is a necessary characteristic of our government leaders.
