I understand that one doesn't vote for the person, but I could never, ever vote Liberal while that creep is leader.
The Deli Lady won our local election! I wonder how many actually voted for her for her politics or her sandwiches! ( like my BIL did!)
You may not officially vote for the leader, and instead just someone in their party, but the more people of either LNP or ALP who win their seat, means that the leader of their party will be PM... so you kind of have to consider that when voting. Your member might be awesome, but if voting for them means risking having The Mad Monk as leader, is it worth it? Not for me it isn't!
(I was actually very excited in 2007 when I voted in the federal election as Kevin Rudd was actually who appeared on my ballot...).
Yes, voting should be compulsory. Alot of people donkey vote, but there are alot of people who actually do end up voting properly if they're forced to go and vote that wouldn't vote if it wasn't compulsory.
Who cares what their reasons are? Whether you think they're valid or not isn't really an issue.
Unsure but I do think the voting age should be 21 not 18. Think people need to live and learn before they can vote and at 18 they haven't yet had the opportunity.
My personal view is that if you don't vote, and vote correctly (is. Not donkey voting) then you have no right to bit ch about the government we end up with, because you gave up that right.
I whole heartedly agree with compulsory voting.
