Anyone who wants to vote for a D or R should be banned from voting.

Problem solved.

Anyone that resides in a place should be able to vote in that place's elections. Other than that I favor no voting restrictions of any kind.

You must be male, own land and at least 3 slaves.

A good ID to prove who your are, that you are a legal citizen and over 18 would be a great place to start.

I goofed. I support the the ones outlined in the constitution (listed in numerous constitutional amendments and expanded far beyond the scenario you're proposing) as well as those in the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

I strongly support a civic literacy test. People who don't understand how our government works should have no voice in determining who's in control of it.

Of course not. But you want to restrict all minorities, young people, anyone who is disposed to vote in your economic best interest, since you don't do it yourself.
