Compulsory voting

Hi,
Just wondering how many people would vote is it wasn't compulsory?
I go to a booth do my vote, then go to another booth & do my mum's vote.
In a democracy, I think it should be voluntary.
Would you vote if you didn't have to?
I know I wouldn't. It makes no difference anyway, with all the back room deals regarding preference votes.
Interested in your thoughts.
Thanks

Pill testing in my opinion is condoning the use of drugs when they’re illegal so I don’t understand why they would bother with it. I don’t do drugs myself so I don’t really mind too much whether it happens or not, but just don’t take drugs if they’re potentially dangerous? I feel like that’s a pretty simple task to complete.

Cigarettes are laughable to me, something I will never ever even try.

Alcohol is currently a big part of my life because Im young and it’s legal, maybe I’d do other drugs if they were legal who knows, maybe in a parallel universe.

Lovely speaking with you, I won’t be using this platform any more because honestly I registered for the paid surveys but it doesn’t seem to be working for me. Have a lovely rest of your life and I hope your mum gets up to date and kills it on social media.
