Do you agree with the saying “Don’t vote. Don’t complain.” ? Well, there are several countries in the world, where people are prohibited by the law to vote and if they don’t vote, they get fined.
In Australia, for example voting is compulsory for federal and state elections for citizens 18 years of age and above.
An example of fining, was back to 2010, in the Tasmanian state election, where about 6,000 people were fined $26 for not voting, and about 2,000 paid the fine.
Some other countries, where voting is compulsory, are Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Luxemburg, North Korea, Singapore and Peru.
