#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    int age; // You missed the semi-colon while declaring the age.
    cout << "How old are you";
    cin >> age;
    if(age>17)
    {
        cout << "You can vote";
    }
    else
    {
        cout << "You can't vote";
    }
    return 0;
}

Also, take care of the indentation while programming. Although it doesn't matter in C++ but it increases readability.
Happy coding!

Missing ; on line 6

Working code:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
    int age;
    cout << "How old are you";
    cin >> age;
    if(age>17){
        cout << "You can vote";
    }else{
        cout << "You can't vote";
    }
    return 0;
}

You are just missing a semi-colon after the very first line of your main function which is:

int age;

Have a good one.
