  • Forced to Vote, Forced to be Educated

    I believe that people should vote for a couple of main reasons.
    1. You live in the United States, you are a law-abiding citizen, you should vote on the decisions which effect your everyday life. This brings me to my second point.
    2. I agree that many people are not educated thus meaning that they should not be the ones deciding our future; however, being "educated" doesn't mean you can't have views. Most people, believe it or not, are either a. Republican or b. Democratic. These people will then obviously always vote for their favored side. If we force everyone to vote, we have a complete poll of what America, uneducated or educated, really wants. The fact is; we can never ensure everyone will be educated... But we can ensure that everyone has a voice.
    I guess a better answer to this question would be that I think they definitely should vote, but using the word "force" definitely could cause some dispute...

  • Voting: A Basic Duty

    Nations are not built in a day! Nor by few people. It is the collective effort of all that counts. And that effort of common people is VOTE. Voting the right person into power will bring a change that everyone desires. Better cities, parks, and a healthy economy.
    Everyone cannot do all the things in the world. That's why we appoint right people to execute a particular job in the right way.

    Voting should be made mandatory, for the benefit of the country. Everyone depends on its country’s governance to prosper. Let it be economical or social independence.

    By making voting mandatory, we would sensitize all the people politically. This would ensure that the candidate elected performs. Most of all, it would bring power of choice, right to question our elected candidate, to the people.

  • Your vote is your future,

    Yes, people should be forced to give votes, they should have the ability to think for whats better for them, it is these people most of the time who dont vote and then through out the leadership of the ruler they are complaining about the leadership qualities of the ruler. If you dont vote you dont have the right to complain as well!

  • Voting is very important

    Considering voting is incredibly important, voting should be forced IF the person signs up. Not only does voting help our community but it also teaches responsibility. However, the age should stay the same. People should have the option to sign up at the age of 18 to vote each and every year of incredibly important and public subjects. Everyone needs to put their voice within the government.

  • I say yes

    People are liking to say "It then wouldnt be a true democracy." Actually it is.. We will have the ability to vote, we are still choosing out leaders. Compulsory voting will force people into understanding what is actually wrong with the country. This way we can get everybody's word. If people didnt vote there would be a consequence. This could even be a small fine. Or like Italy, if someone doesnt vote, there name is put out. They have an extremely high voter turnout. Unlike the United Sates. Most counties with this system has election day as a holiday. Plus, what would it be so different to another thing we are required to do. I had to sign up for the draft. We all drive on the right side of the road. It will become an obligation. You will also have the right to not vote still, you will only need to pay a little bit of money. Anyone, and everyone should be involved in our politics. Afterall its their future.

  • You don't have to vote for Trump

    If in the most recent American election everyone had the responsibility to vote that doesn't mean everyone had to either vote for Hilary or Trump so stop making a big deal out of it. You had other people you could vote for as well, like the independents. If the 40% or so people who didn't vote, vote for someone who wasn't Hilary or Trump then it would show America that they don't have to vote for a Republican or Democrat. Stop acting like you can only vote for Hilary or Trump because that isn't true. As it turned out, Trump won because he got his supporters to vote for him and everyone else let that happen.

  • Yes they should

    Look where America is now. They had a choice of two bad presidents but if everyone voted then at least they'd have the better choice or if a miracle happened, an independent would become president. But seriously, it's not like no one will vote. There's like millions of Americans and there are groups who support one president and there are groups who support the other. Elections have come down to the final handful of votes. If everyone voted then America would have the president most people wanted and therefore America cannot complain. It doesn't matter if some people are uneducated, they still have the right to vote

  • Nobody should be forced to do anything

    It is a free country and people have the right to not vote, just like they have the right to burn the flag. Once the government starts to tells us we have to vote, that when we turn into fascists. The right to vote isn't worth having if we are forced to do it.

  • Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness

    This nation was founded on the very basic principal of "liberty". A man's liberties are vast, and range from civic to military. A man may choose whatever he wants to do with his life, so long as it does not violate the constitution; and not voting is therefore a God-given right, given the fact it is not forced in the constitution. Forcing people to vote is absolute fascism, and should never be enforced.

  • Because people can vote when they feel like it

    People will vote when they feel like it. Forcing people to vote will make them less likely to vote in anny other elections. Most people will vote when they see the person they want, but if not, they will just not vote at all. Thats my arguement... THANKS EVERY ONE!:D

  • Voting should not be forced

    To be completely honest I can see where both sides are coming from. Although I agree with us not being forced to vote. Its not fair to people who don't know what to choose and if they end up choosing something wrong it may affect everyone badly. Like the person said, voting is a human right but it should not be an obligation.

  • Compulsory Voting Encourages People to Gamble on Other Peoples Fate

    I understand why some people think it should be compulsory, as it does kind of encourage people to think and take part. But, it's not like betting on a sport where if you lose, for the most part, you're the only one that's affected. The future of an entire country/community depends on the choice that's made!

    For example, let's say I had to vote between Candidate A and Candidate B for who'd rule my country. After hearing both sides argue their points, I truly don't know which one to favour. But, because I'm being forced to choose one of the 2, I make a guess and choose Candidate A because I think that's who my friends and family would want me to vote for. Then, in the future, we find out Candidate A was a bad choice who was/will cause many innocent people to suffer. So, I guess I then have to get the blame for not guessing the right candidate and causing everybody else's suffering.

    Voting is a human right, no question about it. But it should not be an obligation. Voting should only be done by those who are confident they know which side to vote for, who clearly favour one side of the other and are prepared to face the consequences if they make a bad choice. Not by people who leave it to chance for what their and everybody else's future will be.

  • Compulsory voting is not real democracy

    People should be free to decide whether or not they want to vote. If they don't care who gets in, they should be allowed not to vote. If they don't like any of the candidates, they should not be forced to vote. It's almost insulting that such a thing is enforced on people.

  • Freedom of Speech

    It is a free country. And the people are , and should be able to make their own decisions. Especially when it comes to voting. People should not be forced to vote because it is a free country and we are able to make our own decisions. That's what i think
