I was talking with some friends yesterday, and one of them mentioned that Australian citizens are required
to vote. Considering that many Americans don't vote
, this got me thinking. What if voting was cumpolsory in the US? Would requiring people to vote make them care a little more about politics, or would we simply see elections where the candidate who's name is more fun to say wins? Personally, I wouldn't mind, but then, I'm part of the 54% that votes.
Opinions anyone? Also, for people who live in Australia, do you find that making people vote makes them care?
