    How democratic! Forcing people to vote what they don´t want to vote is totalitarian and the admission of terrible politics.

    Why do Republicans always object to people voting?

    The article fails to point out that the USSR copied the Australian model to encourage voting.

    We see the far right here discouraging voting. Why?

    I'd like to see it where you are not punished for failing to vote but you pay a lower tax rate if you can prove you voted

    Aren't Republicans for lower taxes?

    Mandatory voting would spell the end of the republican party. Democrats won the popular votes like in the last election, republicans won due to gerrymandering. And that was an off year election.

    Obama: How About Mandatory Voting

    During a town hall style meeting in Cleveland Wednesday, President Obama suggested mandatory voting in the United States would be a good, "transformative" thing for the country. He also suggested it would be a good way to combat campaign spending in elections.



    As a reminder, President Obama spent more than $750 million to get elected in 2008 and more than $1 billion to get re-elected in 2012. He also reversed his long time position of taking PAC money in order to win in 2012 and has been supported by big labor union donations.

    Obama confirms: I really love mandates

    No kidding. Suggesting mandates — and especially enforcing them — seems to be all that’s on Barack Obama’s mind as President. Yesterday, Obama told an audience during a speech on middle-class economics that the US should really consider making voting mandatory … like health insurance and footing the bill for contraception, et cetera et cetera et cetera:


    “Other countries have mandatory voting,” Obama said Wednesday in Cleveland, where he spoke about the importance of middle class economics.

    “It would be transformative if everybody voted — that would counteract money more than anything.”

    The clout of millionaires and billionaires in campaign funding has been enormous, and many claim the uber wealthy have undue leverage in politics.

    “The people who tend not to vote are young, they’re lower income, they’re skewed more heavily toward immigrant groups and minorities,” Obama said. “There’s a reason why some folks try to keep them away from the polls.”

    The President cited Australia as one of the countries that has mandatory voting. But there are many more.

    At least 26 countries have compulsory voting, according to the Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance. 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.

    “I don’t think I’ve ever said this publicly,” Obama started out his argument … and there’s a reason for it. As Popehat noted on Twitter this morning, the act of not voting is political speech, protected by the First Amendment. He’s also nonplussed that someone would have to explain that to a person often described as a Constitutional scholar:
