Formatted abstract
For decades now, there has been no more written about or analysed issue in the regulation of democracy, or perhaps political science generally, in Australia, than compulsory voting. Whilst compulsion remains a distinctly, though hardly unique, Australian phenomenon, there is burgeoning international interest in it, driven by ongoing concern with declining voter turnout in the west. Amongst all this debate, scant attention however has been paid to the fundamental consideration of what we are asking people to do when we encourage or require them to vote.
