qualifications to vote

We British have a general election in a few weeks.


One minor theme has been, as casually explored on a Fox-bashing thread, qualifications to vote.

Away from practicalities and what any tests should consist of...

Is it right or wrong to exclude any sane adult from the process which selects those who govern them and writes the laws which bind them?
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

There is absolutely no reason in my mind to exclude anyone who is a citizen.

YOU DON'T NEED A VOTER ID to prove you are a citizen.

If we are going to have people voting to bind others, my preference is to qualify voters based on whether they would use this binding vote to seek to impose infringement of natural rights.  if they would, I would disqualify them.

What do you mean by voting to bind others?

I mean voting to have government enforce conditions on individuals.
