Why encourage people to vote?


"The political class's cry of "Register to vote or your voice will go unheard!" would sound more convincing if they hadn't spent the past 11 months wailing over the last thing we voted for and wondering why clever people like them should have to listen to the voices of stupid people like us." Brendan O'Neill today on his usual good form.

I don't think people should be encouraged to vote. 

Encourage people to vote for one or other party, if you wish, but not to vote on principle. It's rather a shame, on the whole, if elections are decided by the votes of people who couldn't really be bothered to vote but were nagged into doing so.
