  • Speaker: Compulsory voting and election turnout,

    But what if the issue is that most ppl are not voting through system disaffection. how would compulsion change that? What if the model / system of western democracy is the problem? Theres a lot of evidence over the last 40 years that this is the case. There's a high probability that compulsion isn't going to change the system. Tell me what is right about 1m people winning a mandate to govern 4m for the next 3 years in which said government can pick and choose what policies they like with no accountability to the 4m if they don't do what they said.
