The ONLY way to actually 'improve' voting would be to ensure that ALL REGISTERED VOTERS actually VOTE! And ONLY ONCE! The caveat to that is that only a small proportion of reasonably informed voters of ANY party actually VOTE....the NEXT step to 'improve' voting is to get the military votes in on time and properly. Third...NO dead people may vote unless they actually SHOW UP and PROVE that they are DEAD. ( I know...that makes NO sense....but Congress could find a way: Probably because their lackeys COUNT the votes.) Any other thoughts? OK...enforce the laws so Black Panther Party members aren't Intimidating voters. ALSO...NO EARLY VOTING! Finally....No ONE in Chicago could vote,,,,EVER AGAIN!

I disagree. There is no universal right to vote identified in the Constitution. This is borne out by the fact that for something like 130 years women couldn't vote.

There should be a minimum competency test required to qualify to vote. Prospective voters should be tested for their knowledge of how the government functions and what the powers and duties are of the various public offices on the ballot.

The Founders never trusted the 'masses' to vote intelligently. For all of the left's wailing and whining about how the Constitution is antiquated because the Founders couldn't envision everything, the fact is they understood the concept of "low information voters" very well, 226 years before the rest of us identified them.

President Obama signed an executive order on Thursday authorizing an election commission designed to find ways to make voting easier at the local and state level. If you recall, Obama addressed this issue during his State of the Union address saying he wants to “improve the voting experience” in this country. “When any American—no matter where they live or what their party—are denied that right because they can’t wait for five or six or seven hours just to cast their ballot, we are betraying our ideals.”

Some of the “problems” the bipartisan commission will address include long lines on...
