Literacy Test Law and Legal Definition
Literacy test is a test that determines the qualification of a voter based on his/her his ability to read and write or ability to read and understand any section of the State or Federal Constitution. Initially, the test was implemented by the federal government first employed as part of the immigration process.
However, the provisions of 42 USCS § 1973b suspends the use of tests or devices in determining eligibility to vote.
