@GlowingLantern@mastodon.social @lightweight I'm Australian, or voting is compulsory, but you do have to register. I think mostly because the electoral commission doesn't trust any other databases. Or local elections are 100% by mail, but state and federal are in person unless you have a reason. But all they ask us that you have a reason, they don't check what that reason is.
@GlowingLantern@mastodon.social @lightweight but most importantly the in person elections have sausage sizzles, so everyone can buy a democracy sausage from a local group fundraising.
