Time to abolish compulsory voting?
Should compulsory voting be scrapped? John Stanley discusses the pros and cons of abolishing compulsory voting. Would it cause confusion? Here's a few other ideas that we could use on the ballot paper.
Stay up to date on breaking news with 2UE on Twitter
The latest political opinion poll for 2013 is released, the first of many in this federal election year. John Stanley reveals why it will be the western suburbs of Sydney where this election will be fought and won.
Should we increase the Newstart allowance? Tim Webster discusses further the issue raised this week on those struggling to survive on $35 a day, and our attention now drawn to those disadvantaged in our suburbs.
Just remember Politicians love to be first on the ballot paper because of the Donkey Vote.
People that couldn't care less or don't know about the candidates or parties and are intimidated by the fines and physical violence if they don't pay those fines and just mark the ballot paper from the top down starting at one (1).
Do you know me apart from what you see of my postings here?
Will you let me control every aspect of your life including locking you in Gaol for doing something that I don't like?
If you answered NO then why do you vote?Bikinis not burkas Sunday 6 January, 2013 - 9:05 PM
It must be a good move see how the socialists here are trying to put it down and come up with other ideas. One of the politcal nerds here is John Stanley fully rusted on.mick Sunday 6 January, 2013 - 11:36 AM
No it is not broken James W but it certainly abused and trashed by Gillard and Labor at the last federal and it the state elections. Look at what they are currently doing with the electrol office enrolments, inducing the electoral office by law changes to manipulate the elections yet again, that was certainly not broken James W.mick Sunday 6 January, 2013 - 11:11 AM
Lets see Bill, the last 5 years. Triple A rating from ALL 3 of the ratings agencies, first time ever. Dodged the worst effects of the GFC (Global Financial Crisis - that's 2 hemispheres Bill) thanks to affirmative action being taken to in still confidence in the early days of the GFC. Things are looking very TIDY now, under the circumstances.James W Sunday 6 January, 2013 - 7:57 AM
It might be best to leave it alone. Some research shows that abolishing compulsory voting (which is basically turning up at a Polling booth of have your name crossed off on the electoral roll) may result in more idiot greens party, independent and boofhead labor party votes. That is thus detrimental to good efficient, honest government - look at the Rudd/Gillard/slimegreens/turncoat disgraceful mess made of our country over the past 5 years and continuing.Bill T Abrahams B.Ec Saturday 5 January, 2013 - 2:41 PM
Actually Johannes, it'd be the opposite. The less interested 'left' side of Australia would be far less inclined to vote than the right. It's why the GOP are constantly introduced voter suppression tactics in the US, because it improves their chances of winning.bob Saturday 5 January, 2013 - 2:36 PM
