  • Yes it does

  • Americans should vote.

    There is a big enough gap in voting to where it could change the outcome of an election. If a senator or Representative it changes the outcome of what will happen in two years. There might be less education funds, less impact on the nation, put states in dept. Not to mention that the President, the most powerful person in the country, depends on people's vote.

  • To eats poop

    In order to make country better, everyone should eat politician's poop and they can vote then.....If u want to vote you have to eat poop....Poop eater country is usa....There is no need to vote..If you eat poop you don't have to vote....So guys just eat poop and enjoy poop eating

  • We should vote

    What's the point of not voting? Are you stupid? Voting should be required because jury duty is forced upon us, we are forced to pay taxes, we are forced to follow the laws that the government decides, so we should have to help decide on elected officials. It is no different.

  • Americans should want and be required to vote!!!

    Americans should want to vote and be required to. I think that because were the people of the country we get to choose what we want to vote and who we want to vote for. We are the voice of America we get to say what goes all we need to do is stick together and vote for the right things to make our country better.

  • Because Donald Trump

    Because off trump is the one who is going to start the world war 2 and if either of them are going to be president they will have a war and that is why they had such a close vote this year and so yea we should not be made to vote

  • Becuase we can

    Did you know that we have millions of eligible voters in the U.S., yet only about 65% of them vote in national elections? Should Americans be required to vote? I think they should. Yes because it is a way to support our country
    Least hurtful thing task we have as americans
    It is a privilege and an honor.First there is a big enough gap in voting to where it could change the outcome of an election. If a senator or Representative it changes the outcome of what will happen in two years. There might be less education funds, less impact on the nation, put states in dept. Not to mention that the President, the most powerful person in the country, depends on people's vote.

  • Americans should vote:

    The right to vote is a big deal. Whenever a government collapses or is overthrown, one of the first things people demand is the right to vote for their leaders. During the revolutions of the"Arab Spring in 2011, people in egypt and tunisia and libya all demanded free and fair elections. Voting is considered so important that most people most equate it with democracy itself elections in new democracies are very important and voter turnout is usually high and enthusiastic in 1994 when south africa became a full democracy people stood in line for more that eight hours in order to vote. In iraq after the overthrown of saddam hussein people proudly displayed their purple index fingers proof that they had voted in the election the united states of america is also a democracy but many americans do not vote but i think americans should vote.

  • As a citizen of a country, one should be required to vote for government officials.

    I'm a strong conservative, so i hate excessive government control, but i do feel that voting should be mandatory. Around 25 to 30% of americans actually vote, which might give one party an advantage over the other parties. If everyone voted, the presidential election winners would actually win fair. Also, jury duty is forced upon us, we are forced to pay taxes, we are forced to follow the laws that the government decides, so we should have to help decide on elected officials. It is no different.

  • Why be forced to do something you don't want to do?

    If all Americans were forced to vote, many would be unmotivated and would do what their friends told them to do. That doesn't seem like a good way to pick someone to lead the country.Their not voting because they can their voting to vote based on who their friends tells them to vote for.

  • No – It is a privilege, not a right

    No, Americans should not be required to vote. We, as Americans, get to partake in one of the greatest political systems ever. One of the bases of this political system is individual freedom. This freedom extends to the process of voting. To attempt to force a person to vote, who has no vested interest in the outcome of the election, would lead to calamity. While you may not like the person who won the election, could you imagine what would happen if people who do not care, cast a vote. We could hear the news on election night that write-in candidate Mickey Mouse has won the presidential election. It is because of that, that I think there should be no requirement to vote.

  • No, Americans should not be required to vote

    Voting is a privilege that Americans should take advantage of. This is the biggest opportunity for a citizen to voice their opinion. Unfortunately, too many Americans are lazy, uneducated with the process or apathetic to their country to vote. To force them to vote when they don't know or care of the outcome can only have bad results. I would much prefer a smaller, intelligent and knowledgeable electorate, than an environment where 60% are just pulling a lever. Requiring a vote would also lead to fraud - people who don't care would "sell" their vote and create an untenable situation for our country.

  • Choices.

    No, Americans should not be required to vote. Yes, many people are too lazy to vote or simply don't want jury duty but there are also good reasons not to vote. If a person does not feel that they are informed enough to vote then why would they vote? It would have a negative impact.

  • Because Donald Trump

    Because off trump is the one who is going to start the world war 2 and if either of them are going to be president they will have a war and that is why they had such a close vote this year and so yea we should not be made to vote

  • People are force to do too much

    It is clear that americans are forced to do too much like pay taxes. For example, according to Andrew Lundeen from taxfoundation.Org, “These results are as expected” the more people make the more tax people have to pay. For example. Citizens who make $100,000 all the way up to $200,000 have to pay 8.8% of what they make in taxes. The same thing happens with income taxes except MORE. There are 3 types of taxes americans have to pay. Why do citizens pay more taxes the more they make? That seems unfair.

  • No Americans should not be required to vote.

    Voter turnout has nothing to do with voter satisfaction. The United States although low in voter turnout rates, has one of the highest rates in voter satisfaction. However, in places like Italy who require voting have high voter turnout rates however do not favor their system or those who are elected. This shows that if the U.S was required to vote then no one would be satisfied with who was elected. The citizens would definitely not favor the voting system.

  • No, voting no

    No, nobody should be forced to vote. Especially if there isn't some they want to vote for or feel comfortable voting for. Nobody wants trump nobody wants hillary this whole presidency thing is just ruining the world and the countries... People should just vote if they want to not be forced to

  • No no no

    America is a place to be and if we were required to vote than that would definitely ruin the concept. If you had irresponsible people vote than they'd just put down a random name. Id rather have a low turnout rather than getting a president people just randomly put down on a paper.
