None. Why in the world would you restrict voting?

Let's not call it a restriction, it's more of a common sense regulation for everyone's benefit. All rights have limits don't they?

None of the above, all of those things are restrictions on voting.

Age (needs to be 18 or above), citizenship (needs to currently be a U.S. citizen), not being a felon right now, and I am open to the idea of a voter ID (in order to prevent/reduce the risk of voter fraud) on the condition that every legitimate voter in a state genuinely gets one, and with the help of the government if necessary (if they are too poor, et cetera).

I am for restricting convicted felons, people with a dishonorable discharge from the military, illegals.
Elected reps/ officials should not be allowed to vote themselves pay raises, retirement packages or benefit packages. That should be put to the voter.
Voting age should be lowered to 16. Responsible enough to have a drivers license then they should be allowed to vote.

Maybe we should only allow people with IQ's above 150 to vote, or perhaps only college grads, and limit the voting age to those over 30. Why not stop women for voting? After all our forefathers did not allow women to vote. Maybe only Wall St bankers or simply the wealthiest Americans. Most importantly, just whose benefit are we talking about here?

I'm still trying to understand how GW Bush was elected for a second term.
