I believe that the age for voting 18 years is quite suitable. By this age, a person has a more or less formed worldview and becomes responsible for his actions.

In my eyes you're not an adult till you hit 25 years of age so should be 25.

I sometimes wonder if there should be an upper age for voting as well as a lower one.....

Minimum age 25, have an IQ high enough to be able to read a party manifesto and understand that the media will lie to influence your vote.
