Idiots and Insane People — Vote or No?

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferelbaum @ 10:55 am

Since tomorrow is Election Day (you knew that right? you’re going to vote, aren’t you?) I spent part of the weekend studying the questions on my sample ballot. Here’s my favorite:

Should we revise: “the current constitutional language concerning denial of the right to vote by deleting the phrase “idiot or insane person” and providing instead that a “person who has been adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction to lack the capacity to understand the act of voting”?”

Personally I think that all idiots should be barred from voting (but I think we’d end up with a tiny voting pool).
