Voter Deliberation

If all a voter does is vote for the candidate who showed him the most TV ads and sent him the most flyers, I would rather he did not vote at all. All he does is promote a system where offices can be bought. If the voter picks candidates based on who has the nicest hair, who looks like they would be most fun in bed or at a picnic, I would rather they stayed home. Ditto for people who mindlessly vote as their parents voted. Increased voter turnout is not necessarily a good thing. You want only the voters who have put some thought into their choices.
