Compulsory In News: The Most Popular Tweets | Australia

@vanbadham I engaged with a man at work about penalty rates, and their importance to me as a minimum wage earner (I can afford to eat). I discovered he was a Christian and was against compulsory voting but all for anti abortion laws. Now toasting democracy with a cup of his blood. Cheers!.

@MissNyetTrump It’s like in NZ. It’s compulsory for all 18+ to be registered to vote but not compulsory to vote! Kids pre-sign up at High school. Voting is real easy, it’s on Saturday, there are polling booths everywhere even in poor areas, no queues, paper ballots & free from corruption in NZ.

@red3_standingby Compulsory voting turns the nonvoting electorate into voters thereby improving the legitimacy of the election. You cannot possibly deny that an election with only half the population voting is less democratic in a democracy then one where the entire citizenary votes.

Make it compulsory for Men like these to get Vasectomy instead..

How good is compulsory attendance at a voting booth? How good are paper bsllots? How good is a democracy sausage? How good is seeing the back of temporary PM SloMo? A great day for Australia #ausvotes #democracysausage.

@jennycohn1 This is the enthusiasm compulsory voting brings. No complacency about our rights..

Voting does my head in hope you all vote as fines $155 #VoteForChange #ripBobHawke labor party ✌️remember it’s compulsory for you to vote in Australia ✌️🇦🇺.

@mshaanshahid No one is compulsory , hope so they will fall and get others to do justice with economy, actors played vital role in bringing these maskharas, #hunaraamaey.

@Suetonius_ In a system of non-compulsory voting I know without a shadow of a doubt that it is the will of the people because everyone who doesn’t vote gives their tacit agreement to the decisions of their peers. Compulsory voting quite literally disrespects the will of the voters..

Just a little #DemocracySausage Always proud to be in a country with compulsory voting, a proper preferential system, and no electronic voting nonsense. Oh and eat shit, Fred Nile..

Election queues are nuts in this country! I guess voting is ultra complicated. Literally takes less than a minute back home! If it wasn’t compulsory, would people just give up? #AusVotes.

@MissNyetTrump you definitely shouldn’t need identification from what i understand voting is compulsory.

@StiffShooter @Peter_Fitz Why are you telling another man how to dress? As long as he isn’t campaigning to make bandannas compulsory, what the hell doe it matter to you what he wears?.

@RafeifIsmail @slamup I guess that puts compulsory voting into context where people are being killed just for asking to have a vote.

Fact : Voting is compulsory in Australia. Failure to vote at a federal election without a valid reason is an offence, with $20 penalty..

@Prettysnidefor1 As it is compulsory to Vote in Australia the turn out argument seems a bit redundant?.

I hate how it’s compulsory to vote. I don’t follow nor care about politics. I literally just donkey voted and now I’m just waiting for my boyfriend..

@Lee_Cobaj Not at all! There’s almost a festive air. Many polling booths are in schools, and parents sell cakes and sausages to the voters to raise money for the schools. Voting is compulsory, so you might as well enjoy it. #democracysausage #ausvotes.

@annabelcrabb What about those of us who think we shouldn’t be forced to pick between the best of a rotten bunch of selfish lying assholes who are out of touch with actual real life everyday Australians? Voting should not be compulsory. It’s ridiculous..

@billbennettnz @kominsens I think compulsory voting is a good thing. No voter suppression like in the US..

@SBakerMD Perhaps if the other 4 weekdays are compulsory animal meat-only 80% days of healthy animal-protein vs 20% days of unhealthy plant-toxins is better than current diets If you don’t eat your meat, you can’t have any pudding! How can u have any pudding if u don’t eat your meat?!?.

@SenKamalaHarris Off the top of my head: 1. DUI laws 2. Drug laws 3. Selective Service Registration 4. Compulsory vaccination laws 5. Restraining Orders 6. Criminal Sentencing Guidelines 7. Terry Stops.

Australia: voting is compulsory, everyone has to vote and if you don’t you’ll get fined $20 🙄.
