Synopsis: In many democracies, voter turnout is low and getting lower. If the people choose not to govern themselves, should they be forced to do so? For Jason Brennan, compulsory voting is unjust and a petty violation of citizens' liberty. The median non-voter is less informed and rational, as well as more biased than the median voter. According to Lisa Hill, compulsory voting is a reasonable imposition on personal liberty. Hill points to the discernible benefits of compulsory voting and argues that high turnout elections are more democratically legitimate. The authors - both well-known for their work on voting and civic engagement - debate questions such as: ·Do citizens have a duty to vote, and is it an enforceable duty? ·Does compulsory voting violate citizens' liberty? If so, is this sufficient grounds to oppose it? Or is it a justifiable violation? Might it instead promote liberty on the whole? ·Is low turnout a problem, or a blessing? ·Does compulsory voting produce better government? Or, might it instead produce worse government? Might it, in fact, have little effect overall on the quality of government?

Book Description: In Compulsory Voting: For and Against, two leading political theorists debate whether compulsory voting is the solution to the decline in overall voter turnout. Jason Brennan argues that compulsory voting will not only fail to make governments more responsive to the needs of the disadvantaged, but that it might actually harm them. Lisa Hill argues that compulsory voting makes the political system more democratic and helps the most vulnerable citizens ensure that government will better serve their interests.
