Perhaps we should make jury service voluntary? Perhaps all laws should be voluntary? In the grand scheme of things voting is not a major breach of your "freedom of rights" but not voting and being apathetic to democracy is just a two fingered salute to Australian Soldiers doing whatís required to safeguard the country.
Here in Britain, we were denied the right to even vote as to whether to have the EU legislation... contrary to what the public wanted.
So when its time to vote, make sure you do, and understand why it exists.
