Mandatory Voting

Obama: Maybe it's time for mandatory voting - CNN.com

This is interesting in theory. I had no idea other countries had this.

"Other countries have mandatory voting," Obama said Wednesday in Cleveland

At least 26 countries have compulsory voting... Failure to vote is punishable by a fine in countries such as Australia and Belgium; if you fail to pay your fine in Belgium, you could go to prison.

Would love to hear Keith's, (and some KATG Aussies) take on this.
