In many countries around the world individuals can choose to vote, or not to vote, as they see fit. In some countries (Australia, Switzerland and Singapore, for example) it is compulsory to vote in elections. The proposition in this debate must advocate some sort of punishment as an enforcement mechanism - a fine equivalent to about 100 US dollars is the norm. In some countries a no-vote box is available on the ballot paper, which can be crossed by those who do not wish to vote for any of the candidates standing.

The word (voting) implies the meaning of freedom. It will be a contradiction to FORCE the people to vote. However, in highly civilized countries, citizens know that it is their duty to vote.

So, the whole issue depends on the level of awareness of the citizens.

  • People who know they will have to vote will take politics more seriously and start to take a more active role.

In all democracies around the world voter apathy is highest among the poorest and most excluded sectors of society. Since they do not vote the political parties do not create policies for their needs, which leads to a vicious circle of increasing isolation. By making the most disenfranchised vote the major political parties are forced to take notice of them. An example of this is in the UK where the Labour party abandoned its core supporters to pursue ‘middle England’.
