I also consider having the ability to vote a right. To answer the follow-up question, there shouldn’t be any requirement to exercise that right. We don’t require to exercise all of their rights. If everyone on the Metro had a gun, it would be a much more entertaining (and scary) commute. Attaching anything to the vote (requirements, penalties, rewards) would just serve to have some (not all) people mark a ballot without any real consideration. “If I don’t vote this year, I won’t be able to vote in next year’s presidential election…so I’ll chose everyone by alpabetical order.”
