Perry Doesn’t Know Voting Age, Or Even Election Date

Texas Governor Rick Perry, no longer a real factor in the Republican primary race, reveals how much he doesn't know.

Texas Governor Rick Perry may need to take a civics class. At a New Hampshire campaign appearance before an audience of college students Perry incorrectly identified the age at which U.S. citizens can vote, and the date of the upcoming elections.

Perry said he’d appreciate the students’ votes if they were turning 21 by November 12. He missed the voting age of 18 by 3 years, and the election date of November 6 by six days. The voting age was changed from 21 to 18 in 1971 by the adoption of the 26th Amendment to the Constitution.

In Perry’s defense, he is remarkably stupid.
