Default Voting in Australia

Due to our recent national election, it has been brought back to my attention that voting in Australia is "mandatory". That's a pretty broad statement that I seriously doubt actually encompasses the reality of voting in Australia. Would one of you Aussie THL members please expand on that generalization and educated the rest of us on what 'the rest of the story' is? I would like to understand the details of, AND the rationale for, "mandatory" voting in Oz.


PS - Let's keep this thread on topic and not wander off into the weeds of the results of the recent US election, please.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." ~ C.S. Lewis.

Do not confuse technical skill with wisdom. Paul Skvorc
