101. Did voting somehow become mandatory?
I know I plan to vote, and I plan to encourage friends and family to vote as well.

I however am not the type of person to go forcing my opinions on others.

I do think people should vote, but I'm not going to go around telling people that they are assholes because they dont vote.

People have the right to free speech, they also have the right to remain silent.

People have the right to vote, however if they also have the right to not vote.

If they honestly have no opinion one way or the other, or just dont want anything to do with our democratic system thats entirely thier choice.
