As a result, the country can't guarantee that it accurately counts national votes in a timely fashion. This article discusses the problem and potential solutions to the U.S. voting dilemma.

Voting isn't actually mandatory in Australia. You are merely required to attend a polling booth and get your name marked off. What you do with the ballot paper after that is your own business.

Failing to attend a polling station attracts a very small fine. Nothing happens if you don't pay the fine.
