I'm all for mandatory voting. If people are forced to vote in elections, it will only take one or two of them before people start demanding much better options to vote for.

Voting is one of the admission tickets to living in a modern democratic state. If you earn income, you are not allowed to get away with not paying taxes - the same should be true about voting. If you are a citizen, the COST of being such, should be that you are required to take part in the responsibilities of citizenship.

The system works quite nicely in Australia - and believe me - the people would not stand for any more than one or two more elections with the kind of choices they have now. There would be change driven from the grass roots.
