Did you know....
That voting in Australia is compulsory? Australians are required to vote, or face a fine.
I bet they have pretty good turnout.
Can anyone answer why we vote on a Tuesday, when most of us are at work, and not near our local polling place? What would happen if election day was on a Saturday? Think there would be better turnout? Idle minds think about odd stuff.....
Anyway, what was good for our forefathers, is good enough for us ...heh. At least now, we have early voting in many places ...ooo, even at the shopping mall!
