    "Low" voter turnout is not a problem. Everyone who declines to vote is sending a message to the Authorities, either that they are too stupid, just don't care, or maybe don't like the available options. Regardless, not voting is a choice and produces results.

    Movements to increase voter turnout are insidious, and invariably result in low-information and gullible voters turnout out to support the candidates promoted by pressure groups.

    If I were Emperor, elections would be held between midnight and 3 am on Saturday nights, with no mail-ins and no exceptions. The only problem I see is that a lot of voters would be drunk, but that's OK.

    much easier for them to implement -- they have less than one tenth the population

    Proportional Representation by Party
    would allow voters to get and pay for the programs they vote for.

    When we go shop online, do we get what we order?
    Or do we vote for items and get whatever the majority ordered?

    We can only get accountability when people pay
    their taxes to the policies they vote for that represent them.

    Churches are run this way. Nonprofits are run by voluntary
    donors and participants. If they don't provide efficient services,
    people will donate elsewhere that does a better job.

    We need to treat voting and taxes the same way.
    If you vote for a party and those leaders and plans,
    they you pay for those programs, the members and the
    jobs for those leaders you agree represent your beliefs and interests.

    By freedom of choice and free exercise of religion
    which includes political beliefs and religions
    that nobody can be forced against their will to fund or follow or it's abuse.

    Both parties are more interested in less people voting on a regular basis that more voters. The less voters to turn out, the less you need to make an argument for your stance.
