I believe that voting should be required in all national elections and made uniformly easy. A small fine would be imposed on non-voters. Elections today are frequently decided by which side is better at getting out the vote for their side. If everyone must vote, the results will reflect the wishes of all the people. Then the candidates will be compelled to compete on convincing voters of the rightness of their policies, rather than getting out the vote.
