Yeah, I know. Requiring tests in order to vote is an old trick from Jim Crow days to deny people their right to vote. The idea, having been thus spoiled, will never fly again, even if applied without discrimination to all.
Still, I have some sympathy for saying one can’t vote until getting at least a 75% score on this Civic Literacy Exam. Here’s a sample question:
“What are the three branches of government?”
- executive, legislative, judicial
- executive, legislative, military
- bureaucratic, military, industry
- federal, state, local
What scares me is how many voters would fail.
How about you?
