It seems impossible. I came up with a possible answer though:

Spoiler for possible solution
:P

That doesn't work because the riddle states "this year".

If this year means "1917", then he's not just not allowed to vote for President because he's less than one year old, he can't vote because there was no Presidential election in 1917.

Spoiler for guess


Just because someone's birthday doesn't come around except for every 4 years doesn't mean that guy doesn't age four years between birthdays. Someone born Feb 29, 1916 would be 92.

statman got it first, and Scraff was only a bit off. 1917 was a room in a hospital. The man is 17, and therefore old enough to fight in a war, but not to vote.

oh!!!Missed it by miles.A tricky one this :wacko:

BTW, the Presidential election is this year. It's always on a leap year.

Except for when the year is divisible by 100 with no remainder and not 400
