MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN) Rick Perry flubbed both the country's voting age and the date of the upcoming presidential election during a speech to a group of college students in Manchester Tuesday.

The Texas governor told students in the audience he'd appreciate their vote, but only if they were old enough.

Those of you who will be 21 by November the 12th, I ask for your support and your vote, he said. Those of you who won't be, just work hard, because you are going to inherit this, and you are counting on us getting this right.

But Perry didn't get it right. The United States' voting age is 18, and voters will weigh in on the presidential election on November 6.

A few members of the audience giggled, but Perry did not appear to notice his error.
