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.

PHIL MANLEY

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.
