This it's exactly why there should be a simple quiz for voters to pass before being allowed to vote.

You should be required to have some basic understanding of the issue on which you are casting a deciding vote.

I agree universal suffrage is not necessarily a good thing. But if it's a test then parties will just start putting out cheat sheets so their voters are not denied.

Look at how people threw their support behind the 17th amendment without understanding the design of the system. Founders were adamant about states appointing senators for the purpose of balancing power.

Of course they could reclaim in the executive by simply appointing presidential electors instead of going with the popular vote. Can you imaging the uproar that would cause? Haha.

@racer - who should write the questions to determine who is allowed to vote on a subject?

who determines what constitutes a "basic" understanding? also, I don't see how that applies outside of referendums.

imo, a test isn't needed. angelus is cancelled out by AI, inex by thunker,etc. just a more insidious way to gain control over the opposing viewpoint

I guess you're right. Corruption would ruin it.

The only comfort I can take in America's ignorant population is the fact that we're also very apathetic, and most people don't vote.

I just wish there was a good way to encourage involvement

Plenty of absolutely clueless people vote regularly. It's frightening and it's why the politician giving away free ice cream wins almost every time.
