 With such low voter turnout last night it made me think that it should be a law or something that you have to vote. And apparently it is in some countries, I had no idea.

A friend posted this on her facebook page and I agree.
1,628,524 people voted in a province with a population of, according to 2012 BC Stats, approx. 4,622,573. It's time for a grassroots movement to lobby the gov't to make voting an obligation. Like in Australia for instance.

We should definitely make this happen. But how?
