A man was born in 1917. He lived through great depression, fought in the war, and saw Martin Luther King Jr. give his famous speech. But this man is not allowed to vote for the president of America this year on account of his age. Why?

Let me clarify: Not the president of America, but of the United States of America. The man was not mentally unstable and is still alive.

This still doesn't address why it is on account of his age. The problem states it is because of his age that he cannot vote.
Plus, election day is Nov 4, 2008, which is this year. That person will not be president until 2009, but the election is scheduled this year.

The election is in November of this year. He is a citizen. He fought for America in the war.
