Should you be allowed to vote?

All citizens over 18 have the right to vote in this country (now!), but with that right comes the responsibility to know who and what you're voting for. This brief current-events quiz assesses whether you know enough to be qualified to vote.

Remember, if you don't vote, you don't have the right to complain about the outcome. You've still got two weeks to get informed, so if you don't score quite so well on this quiz, you've got a little homework to do!



You Should Be Allowed to Vote




You got 14/15 questions correct.

Generally speaking, you're very well informed.



If you vote this election, you'll know exactly who (and what) you'll be voting for.

You're likely to have strong opinions, and you have the facts to back them up.

  1. I got 11 out of 15 and should be allowed to vote. It sounds like I've got a little work to do.

  3. Hmm, I got all 15 right...is that bad! Am I too steeped in the political process?

  4. Serena - I'd say that's not bad at all. I think many of us are steeped in the political process right now.

    Kate - Oh, don't be scared :-). I'm sure you'll be allowed. I have to wonder where the cutoff for people who the quiz says aren't allowed to vote falls, since they don't have much more time to get up to speed!

  5. You know what you really need in order to vote? The power to see into the future. That way you will know if the person you vote for does anything that they say they will. :)

  6. Mike - I don't know if you really NEED that power in order to vote, but I have to agree it could certainly be very useful.

Now it's YOUR turn - speak your piece, please! Or just let me know you were here; I always like that. But you'll have to leave a name - I've disallowed anonymous comments due to some recent spam problems. Thanks!
