It is a democracy for a reason. Last thing you want to do in a democratic country is to force people to vote. To me, that doesn't sound like a democracy. No need to force people if they don't want to vote or have any interest in voting.
People who don't vote due their own volition, won't vote responsibly if forced to do so.
Many people don't know who to vote for. Therefore they should not.
Complusery voting makes as much sense as a death penalty for an attempted suicide.
Encourage them to vote and make it easier for them to vote; don't penalize them for not voting
This is a free country and i think we don't have to be bossed around by people. we should be able to make our own descions by ourselves without be fined. Thats so not fair. I feel bad for the people in Australia because they have to vote and if they dont they have to pay 50$. That i the most horrible thing ive ever heard. If you agree with me, pick NO! this is a free country! Who's with me! Dont forget to drink your starbucks!
