Americans have a responsibility to know the topics or people that they are voting for. Also laws are confusing and people have voted incorrectly before because they misunderstood what they were voting for, or against.

To make sure that Americans understand what/who they are voting for, they should be required to pass a short quiz on the issues before voting. If they fail then they can be given information written by both sides and if needed can have someone read them this information. Then they will be allowed to vote. It would be important to set up safeguards against people being swayed one way or another if they needed assistance understanding.

It is important that each American have a voice and that there voice is accurately translated through our voting system.

Thank you for wasting my time. Why would you bother posting a reply if you don't have a meaningful response to the argument. Disappointing.

There shouldn't be a quiz before a vote because if the whole point of a debate is to learn something new. If the debate was full of forfeits then how could they know anything on the topic. Only those who knew the topic could actually vote.

It would also be a waste of money since anyone could just look up the answers. It would be expensive to make and it would be completely pointless.

I am not talking about voting on online debates...

I am talking about the United States voting system. For example, voting for a president, or voting on laws.

Same conecept. It will cost lots of money and people will just go to vote see the questions go out research the questions come back with answers and vote. It's pointless and there are so many candidates from minor parties. It would be unrealistic.

Reasons for voting decision: Misunderstanding of the resolution means that arguments are tied. Conduct to pro since con's first round response was bad spelling and conduct. It ruined the debate for Pro.
