The right to vote should require more than just being able to breathe | Letter to the Editor

Letters to the Editor

This is in response to the letter (March 18) by Alexes Shuman about, “State has made it easy for all to cast ballot” to register and vote.

That’s part of the problem we have today – people voting that have never read the Constitution and voting for politicians that don’t uphold their oath of office.

There should be a test to pass showing you have some knowledge of the Constitution. To become a U.S. citizen you must have a general knowledge of the fundamentals of U.S. history and government. The Constitution is the rule book on how government should function.

Just being able to breathe shouldn’t be the only requirement to vote.
