    Default Should voters have to pass an iq test ?

    Very interesting findings here from the BBC website following the Brexit vote analysis

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-38762034

    So, should voters need to pass an IQ test to show that they understand what they are making a decision on ?

    This could be a lively thread !

    Maybe a few basic multiple choice questions (like, who is the Prime Minister) on the ballot paper to show that you have a basic understanding of what you're voting on & if you get any wrong then your vote doiesn't count.

    I can't find a mention of IQ in your link.


    And no they shouldn't, anyway. That should be obvious to anyone who has an IQ.

    if most can't find the polling booth and put a X in a box ,you figure it out...maybe it's time to have text votes . The conservatives won in Cumbria with less than 18% of the electorate. What a nonsense ,it's all Crazy and sad.

    Ok, were there really such people, they would be too stupid to vote, in a way.

    Voting is voluntary, in a free country.
