One of the virtues of living in a liberal democracy is I can just as easily register my displeasure by not voting, as I did in 2012. Making voting mandatory is antithetical to a liberal society that embraces individual liberty, where I have the freedom, not just to vote for who I choose, but not to vote as well. Having said that, there is no way(at least not at this time) that any bill to make voting mandatory would pass congress. Even if it did, I have a strong suspicion that the Supreme Court would overturn it.
