I feel embarrassed that I didn't know that Australia has compulsory voting. What do you guys think about that? Do you feel that people, since they have to (I assume under penalty of a fine or something), they'll just walk in and pull a random lever instead of thinking about it? (Not necessarily any better than what a lot of people do even in voluntary voting countries, but still).
^^Quite possibly. I think this comment would go down as the equivalent of a "Don't you now who I am?" comment here, which is basically an invitation to Australians to hate you. I wonder if the sentiment is the same in the US with that kind of thing,

Plus the fact that you don't have to spend millions on trying to get people to bother to vote.
