Hard to believe that’s an idea being proposed here in the United States. Yes sir under proposed legislation in California:
would require every Californian who registers to vote to “cast a ballot, marked or unmarked in whole or in part, at every election held within the territory within which the person resides.”
That’s right. If you are a registered voter, A Cali Lawmakers wants it LAW that you MUST vote in any election your eligible for.
The proposal, introduced in the state Assembly on Tuesday, would be unprecedented and probably challenged in court should it ultimately become law. It would place the burden for determining the civil penalty and the ultimate punishment on the secretary of state, California’s chief elections officer.
If passed, I’m sure it will be challenged in court – and will be struck down so fast it will make the assemblyman’s head spin.
And notice no set fine, but to be determined by the secretary of state. Lemme guess, those with little money will get a stern talking to, while the rich with have to pay enormous fines.
California stupidity never ceases to amaze me.
