Suffragette Poster At one time the three groups of adults who were legally excluded from voting in many western democracies were convicts, lunatics, and women--as this suffragette poster pointed out.

I have no issue with women voting, of course, but I do have serious complaints about prisoners and people with mental issues being allowed to vote.

Prisoners are not civic-minded people. that's why they are in jail.

I often work at Canadian elections. After our last federal election in 2011 I spoke to one man who was in charge of a mobile poll that went to various seniors' homes on election day. It was a joke. The mere task of marking a ballot correctly was beyond the capability of about 40 percent of the seniors because they suffered from dementia on some level. One such senior with 'reality issues' wanted to know if John Diefenbaker was still Canada's prime minister. Diefenbaker was Canada's PM from 1957 to 1963.

You have to wonder what countries would be like if lunatics were allowed to vote?

Speaking form experience, I know it's extremely difficult to get someone removed from Canada's voters' list because of mental incapacitation. Most people just hope the 'lunatics' don't know enough or care enough to vote.
