The U.S. Ranks 120th Out of 169 Countries in Voter Turnout

According to LiveScience, about 60% of eligible voters will vote in the election today.  And that’s VERY low compared to the rest of the free world.  Of 169 countries with free elections, the U.S. ranks 120th in voter turnout.  There are two reasons why.

One, political science experts say our elections are TOO OFTEN.  With state and local elections, we can vote multiple times a year.  It’s not like that in other countries.  Because of that, we feel like our votes are less valuable.

And two . . . we don’t FINE people for not voting.  Other DEMOCRACIES like Australia and Argentina have MANDATORY voting with small fines for people who don’t.  That makes voter turnout MUCH higher.
