Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

A prescribed age you are required to be
Before you're allowed to interact with me

Before my curfew takes effect tonight
I will have disappeared from your sight

Through my upper surface your submission is tendered
My contents examined for a decision rendered

For a limited time I will fulfill my function
Eventually to return at some future junction

You may notice I'm alliterative in name
Democracy without me wouldn't be the same

What am I?

What Next?

Love it! Very well thought-out, but I don't understand the title?:S

Since the ballot box is being personified, "special guest" is a reference to the fact that the ballot box is not with us every day, but only during an election, or special occasion if you will.
