Voting Works for Me

Under Brazilian law, voting is mandatory for citizens between the ages of 18 and 70. Not voting could result in a small fine and make it impossible to obtain a passport or a government job, among other penalties.__ AP, October 4, 2010

Ah, but that WE could have such a law. Perhaps extend it to receiving State or Federal benefits:  no vote, no cash … and illegals can’t (we should hope, excepting “motor-voter) vote anyway.
