It is partially genuine.
In an actual Alabama voter registration application, there were 2 sets of four questions. The first set of four (technically Part III, instruction B) had to be answered from the person's own knowledge. In the second part (Part III, instruction C) four excerpts from the constitution were printed, and then four related questions would be asked.
The excerpts and corresponding questions were created by the Alabama Supreme Court. The court created 100 sets of 8 questions, referred to as "inserts", so that people wouldn't know ahead of time what questions would be asked. See Hearings of the Senate Subcommittee on Improvements in Judicial Machinery October 13, 1965, Part I starting at page 750 and in much more detail with all 100 versions of the test see the complaint in US v. Baggett.
Quoting the complaint:
On August 26, 1964, the Supreme Court of Alabama ordered the county boards of registrars throughout Alabama to use a revised form of Insert Part III.
According to this order, this revision was necessary because of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The revised Insert Part III contains different
tests from those which had previously been used. These
tests consist of eight questions; four testing the applicant's knowledge of government; four testing the applicant's comprehension and reasoning ability based on printed excerpts from the United States Constitution;
and a dictation test administered by the registrar from one or more of the excerpts of the United States Constitution. There are 100 different forms of these tests. A total of 399 different questions on government and 139 different excerpts from substantially all of the Constitution are used in making up these tests. A copy of the 100 different forms of these tests is
attached as Attachment D and is incorporated herein.
The 68 question test was arranged in 1965, drawing from the 399 real Alabama Supreme Court questions, and published in the newsletter The Dixon Line and elsewhere, so it has been circulating in a form without the excerpts and with 68 rather than just 2 sets of 4 questions since 1965.
(Of the 68 questions in the OP test, questions 1, 2, 6, 7, 11, 12, 13, 18, 23, 24, 25, 26, 31, 32, 37, 38, 43, 44, 45, 50, 51, 59, 60 were asked purely based upon knowledge, question 16 was asked on one insert purely of knowledge and on another insert with an excerpt containing the answer, and the remaining 44 questions were asked with accompanying excerpts containing the answers.)
See also the 1982 Southern Exposure where a professor explains:
Recently I gave seven students a compilation of 68 questions from the Alabama 1964 - 1965 voter registration tests . The actual examinations had only four factual knowledge and four constitutional interpretation questions apiece - but I frankly wanted to overwhelm my students.
As explained in the congressional record:
In Alabama's tests- used since August 1964, answers to four of the eight questions are in printed material on the test sheet
So for this part of the test, first you would read excerpts:
EXCERPTS FROM THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES
Part 1. In case of the removal of the president from office, or of his death, resignation or
inability to discharge the powers and duties of the said office, the same shall devolve on the
Vice-President, and the Congress may by law provide for the case of removal, death, resignation
or inability, both of the President and Vice-President, declaring what officer shall then act as
President, and such officer shall act accordingly, until the disability be removed, or a President
shall be elected.
Part 2. In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in
which a state shall be a party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction
Part 3. In all the other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate
jurisdiction both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the
Congress shall make.
Part 4. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof
the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place
subject to their jurisdiction
Then there were 4 questions:
(After applicant has read, not aloud, the foregoing excerpts from the Constitution, he will
answer the following questions in writing and without assistance:)
- In case the president is unable to perform the duties of his office, who assumes
- "Involuntary servitude" is permitted in the United States upon conviction of a crime.
(True or False)___________
- If a state is a party to a case, the Constitution provides that original jurisdiction shall
- Congress passes laws regulating cases which are included in those over which the United
States Supreme Court has____________________________ jurisdiction.
I hereby certify that I have received no assistance in the completion of this citizenship and
literacy test, that I was allowed the time I desired to complete it, and that I waive any right
existing to demand a copy of same. (If for any reason the applicant does not wish to sign this,
he must discuss the matter with the board of registrars.)
