The Torturing of Voting in Argentina and Buenos Aires

June 28, 2009

For the Americans out there who don’t know, voting is obligatory in Argentina. It seems somewhat anti-democratic to me to force people to vote through the threat of fines, and it seems ridiculous to me to stop selling alcohol the night before in order to prevent people from having hangovers. Can’t you just stock up on beer during the day and drink yourself to death anyway? If you don’t know anything about the cadidates or issues isn’t an uninformed voter probably more dangerous to society than an absention?
