Peter,

Thank you for your informative response. You covered the spectrum and hit on some key issues. Besides the infractions stated in state and federal law regarding how one may lose their right/privilege to vote, can you see any circumstances that could also penalize the “non-criminal” that is, law-abiding citizens to losing or having this privilege suspended?

David touched upon the poor turnout of registered voters, especially at the local level. As a part of our right and responsibility of citizenship, could you see moving toward a voting system where registered voters be required to vote within a prescribed timeframe (e.g. cannot miss more than two consecutive general elections) or risk having some action or some other privilege taken from them?
