Deliberation Materials: Voting

Should voting be compulsory in our democracy?

Free and fair elections are essential to a democracy. They make true representative government possible. Through voting, people express their views about government. They choose leaders who will improve their country and community. But what happens when people choose not to vote? Does that indicate democracy is thriving or failing? What, if anything, should be done to improve voter turnout?

Note: There is an newer version of this deliberation that doesn't include student materials in Spanish.
