Election 2008

This November

To my American cousins, this November 4, please vote! For a country that wants to democratize the middle east, the table here shows the US ranked way down the bottom in terms of participation. Even ignoring those countries where voting is compulsory (like Australia), if only half of all eligible voters here vote, the system doesn’t really work. For the 50% who don’t choose to vote, you can’t complain about the result. Making it on a Saturday instead of a Tuesday would help.
