in oz, everybody must go to the polls or face fines if you do not vote.
the electoral commission will require a response from you as to why you did not vote;
if they are not convinced that you have a good enough reason or that you're lying you will be fined AUS 20 - 50. USD $18 - 45
the commission can take court action against you for not voting and you could be liable for court costs as well.
australia believes that civil duty trumps civil rights.
