The true/false test would be something like:

Every question is True/False.
Every item to be voted on has questions, covering all major aspects.
Voters must score 100% to vote.
Test may be taken multiple times, but there is a brief wait.

(Brief wait: Like, 10-15 minutes for them to spend reading over their test results and the things they are voting on)

In theory, it wouldn't be designed to prevent people from voting, but to prevent people from making mistakes. Also, it would help prevent mistakes caused by intentionally confusing wording meant to trick voters.

I understand why this is tempting. But allowing any government abrogation of the right to vote leads to nightmarish issues of abuse. It creates a maxim that is too toxic to allow. Those who score the tests will never be non-partisan themselves, which will create at the least allegations of problems. (And computerization of this process would be no solution either). And the fundamental problem with it is that what the issue at hand is and the actual facts are always in dispute.
