How many are of the opinion that voting should be a legal citizen obligation and "civic duty" under law?
As individuals we already have consented to laws that are more onerous, time consuming and intrusive than a citizen’s occasional mandatory trip to a polling station.
Therefore voting like jury duty, compulsory schooling, driver’s licenses and paying our taxes should become another legal obligation and civic duty that is required under our laws.
Citizens failing to attend at a polling station on Election Day would forfeit their right and ability to obtain certain services like, social assistance, unemployment, welfare benefits, and driver’s licenses, pass ports or health cards from governments?
This would be the fastest most effective way to raise the level of participation in our municipal, provincial and federal elections of minority and majority groups according to statistics?
