    Do you think a qualification test should be given for ability to vote?

    I'm not sure, after all how could you be sure what would qualify as right and wrong on the test? I do hold the opinion that if you have a criminal record for any offense you should be stripped of the right to vote at all though.

    No. If you are an American citizen that is all the qualification that is needed.

    The qualification test is being an American citizen.  Voting is a right that comes with being a citizen.  It isn't for us to judge whether someone is qualified to vote or not as the standards for being qualified would be very hard to pin down.

    Being in prison might be the only factor I see. If someone has done their time then they should be allowed to vote thats what rehibilitation is. And as a African American this sounds more like the aptitude test given before and after Jim Crow.

    Absolutely. One question: "Are you going to vote for me, or not?"

    Oh. Wait a moment. They pretty much already do that in Chicago.

    Never mind.

    No.  As a woman with a good understanding of history, I firmly believe that the only fair way to run a system is to provide that every citizen be granted the right to vote.  Indeed, I see it as a civic duty.

    Yes.  We cant have people voting based on ideas that Medicare is not a federal program. The low information voter is a greater threat than the inequity of limiting voting rights.  This is only true now.  My grandfathers generation was the greatest, we are the dumbest.

    I think voting means giving your opinion about some matter but If a man don't understand that matter completely and also don't know the man he's voting for,then what's the value of his vote?
    Qualification test is a good idea.
