WHile I agree, the point i was making and I believe it is an important one(not to say your's is not!) is, that voters who do not know the issues voting is a bad thing

Wasn't there an episode of Barney Miller ('70s/'80s sitcom) where they arrest a guy for locking his wife in the bathroom and not letting her leave because she was going to vote against the person he was going to vote for? He had done all this research and knew that the candidate he supported was the best one and when she heard who he was voting for, she decided to cancel out his vote just for the sake of it. ; )

I agree with lowstudent on this point Sometimes not having people vote is better.
