Limiting right to vote

Synonyms:
Restricting right to vote
Denying right to vote
Claim:
Citizens should sit for a short quiz on the subject of a referendum and only become eligible for voting if they pass. The purpose of such voting tests is not to limit political participation but to improve its quality by making it a right for those who deserve it. It is not acceptable to allow someone who is ignorant of the basic facts on a issue to take part in making a vital decision for the country. Voting tests would help citizens make more informed decision, would increase awareness of the importance of voting and would force political parties to make a real effort to educate the public and not just to win their votes.
