The problem with restricting the vote to sane people is that any country sane enough to pull it off is sane enough not to need it.

I could name quite a few voting restrictions that would keep the idiots from screwing things up if only there weren't enough idiots to hijack the restrictions and use them to prevent the sane people from voting.

Personally, I'm in favour of having a dummy election on every ballot for an office that doesn't exist or is not holding an election that year. In the runup to the election, the airwaves would be blanketed with ads for nonexistent candidates supposedly running in the dummy election. Any ballot that recorded a vote in the dummy election would be discarded entirely, because that voter (a) clearly doesn't know how the system works well enough to have an informed opinion and (b) clearly demonstrated a propensity to vote on the basis of advertisements and therefore probably doesn't have an informed opinion on anything anyway.
