    In line with the essence that there should be no taxation without representation, should there be an opt-out ability whereby you'd get a tax cut if you decided not to vote?

    Not an extra tax to be able to vote (as I'm sure the left would try to spin it) but a rebate for those who decide against voting. I'm sure the hippies would still claim its the rich trying to monopolies the electorate but it really isn't.

    Interesting idea, but when people are given the option to have a tax cut then a lot of people on low incomes will take it and scrap their vote. This really goes against the whole idea of "right to vote".
