DO YOU THINK VOTING IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS SHOULD BE COMPULSORY SUCH AS STATE AND FEDERAL ELECTIONS AND WHY?
Yes, I think it should be. We should all be more responsible as individuals for the political decisions made. Whether it is a national decision or local decision, it is all important.
If it’s compulsory, those not interested generally take a bit of notice so not to vote a knob into office. If it’s not compulsory you won’t get a good representation of who actually votes, so the result will be somewhat abstract.
