Should we not be outraged that 20% of voters are disenfranchised ?
In January we pointed out that “Practically speaking The Poor (20% of voters ) are disenfranchised because the poor often do not have time to vote. They are too busy just trying to survive,” said, Poor Vote Turnout . “To enfranchise the poor, we are calling for the government to bring in a voting incentive program where every voter is given $100 cash when they cast their secret ballot. This money can be clawed back at income tax time from those who are not needy and it will allow a poor person to make their own arrangements to vote.”
So far no Canadian politician has spoken publicly for or against such a program. It is obvious a program of cash incentives for voting will not be a reality in the near future so we are turning away from government to a private solution.
We still maintain in the long run, a voter cash incentive program should be a government program.
