I like preferential voting, but I'm not sure about compulsory voting.

And I'm pretty sure legislators don't give a shit about either.

why try to make people care about politics? it simply doesn't matter that much to that many people.

all making voting mandatory does is further dilute the voting pool with more uneducated voters who don't give a shit.

i said further dilute. what's the point of throwing even more uneducated voters in there? to make voting matter even less?

No to prevent pwb's stoner friends from not voting in their interests. To prevent the working class from not voting because... well they are working. To prevent minorities from not voting because a political campaign had been geared to convince them not to vote.

Basically you get small fine if you don't vote. However it creates a culture that results in a very large number of people enrolling and voting. That is a good thing. The more people that vote the better.
