Around here, every citizen of voting age gets an "election notice" via mail when there is an election.
With that, you either go and vote or you don´t.

In part, that's my point. Long prior to being old enough to register to vote, I could never figure out why we must register for a party affiliation.

After closing out last night I was thinking my theory that,
registering for either party regardless of actual party affiliation simply to vote in a primary or the other party affiliation rather than the one that is the preferred party affiliation of an individual really doesn't matter depending how they want to play their vote is not very accurate.

However, there currently seems to be a huge trend of party affiliation registered voters that aren't liking their party very much. And, when it comes time to vote, their ballots may be messy?

Anyways more importantly,
I was fully going to use the phrase "nasty librarians" I do not think I did. At least I can't find it. But, for real. I was going to use that phrase and laughingly shied away from it. So, that may be synchrony.

Thanks for the informative post LittleIceAge, to everyone else thank you for your posts and good humor too.

Welcome to America..

In Australia when you turn 18 you register to vote, it is illegal not to vote in any election, you get fined if you don’t.. but.. you don’t have to give any clue as to what party you would vote for.

It’s very unAustralian not to vote and have your say.  Chuckle

So voting is mandatory in AUS ?  Lmao

I mean its frowned upon yes...for probably the same resons you guys have, but nobody is forced to vote. Voter participation is usually in the low 70s on a federal level. State level is even less. But mandatory? Nah...

But you don´t have to do anything, the government knows where you are and how old you are. From the day you are eligible to vote you automatically get a "election notice" in the mail. With that you go to the polls and cast a ballot. With a pen. On a large piece of paper. No machines necessary.
Another weirdness of the US election system from a euro viewpoint. Why would one need a machine to let people vote?

A machine? 1dunno1

Voting is a pain, but if they didn’t fine you for not voting, it would probably be like the USA, no one votes.. Aussies are lazy bastards.. Chuckle

What show is that from?
If society fell apart, we - the people would build a new one. Most people are good at their core, and when we see things that are wrong we work to fix them together. Make friends with your neighbors, get involved with your community - because we will rebuild our lives, our communities, from horrible circumstances we always will.
