The real problem with compulsory voting is that you have to do it .....

   ......... even if there is no-one on the ballot worth voting for.  :(

Can you decline your ballot or spoil it?

 You can cast an "informal" vote, which doesn't get counted, but you still have to show up to get your name ticked off or you get a fine for not voting. There are alternatives to showing up on the day, but you still have to vote.


 I once had a woman tell me that she votes "informal" every time. I told her to never let me hear her complaining about the government again. 

 She looked at me with a surprised face and asked why.

 I looked her in the eye and said ... "because you didn't vote for them, and you didn't vote against them" ......

 She seemed to get offended for some reason ...


I have seldom seen her since, and whilst I am civil on the odd occasion we have met, there is almost no chance of any form of friendship ..... ever. (there are other reasons too :()

 ...... yeah, but what if there is not one lesser than the other ?  :huh:


My problem with it all is that the best one for the job isn't always on the ballot paper ....   :(
