Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
And it shouldn't just be the president either, it should be for anyone running for any public office in the country.
It would make being an informed voter so much easier.

Who would make this "test"? How are you gonna make sure its not biased? Who grades them?

I'm more for the voter having to pass a test. It irks me to no end that a dumbass from Hicktown, who still thinks the world is flat, has a vote that counts as much as mine.

Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Not a bad idea.
But I don't think the test would mean much as the candidates would just be coached for days before hand (like they are before debates).
I just don't think it would say anything.
A far better test, IMO, would be to get them loaded up with a 'truth drug' (like sodium thiopental) and then ask them what they REALLY think about the major issues...then you might begin to understand what they really think and know.

I voted no because I wouldnt want it to be in any legally binding way, but something they were challenged to (like debates)....that could be kind of cool and the people would still be able to decide for themselves.
