Age of candidacy to write in votes[edit]

Does the age of candidacy apply to write in votes? Supposing if someone who was 25 years old ran for governor unofficially and won by write in , would they take office regardless of the fact that you must be 30 years of age?

It would depend on the state, I believe, and how it is worded. For example to be a Rep., you must be over 25, no matter what, for in the US Constitution it states: "No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen."
Also, not all states have a specific age regarding governors.

Australia[edit]

Does anyone have a reference for where the provision for the age of candidacy in Australia is? i.e. which act, what section in the constitution? I can't seem to find it anywhere 60.241.184.127 (talk) 12:34, 23 January 2011 (UTC) (Sorry wasn't logged in: Iamstupido (talk) 12:35, 23 January 2011 (UTC) )

Turkey[edit]

The age of candidacy in Turkey will be changed to 18 as soon as the results from the recent constitutional referendum are made official (probably in a couple weeks). Kaldari (talk) 20:53, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Recommend Age of Candidacy in US[edit]

Recommend splitting out the US in depth discussion. Also recommend converting list into a table or using NO_TOC. Trilotat (talk) 21:31, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

Those sound like good ideas to me, although it would be good to leave a brief summary of the US issues in this article. Kaldari (talk) 21:59, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
I cannot tell if my suggestion was late or someone has since done this. I consider this complete. Trilotat (talk) 14:02, 13 May 2017 (UTC)
