    In Australia you need your name and address and they mark you off. If you donít get marked off you get fined. $25 I think.

    Um, is that at the polls or to get an ID?

    At the polls. Once you vote you can have a sausage sizzle. But you have to pay $2.50.

    Are you saying that in Australia, you get fined if you don't vote?

    Forcing people to vote seems like government overreach to me, and I wonder what it would take for the government to reach just a little bit further and start monitoring how individuals vote.

    So monitorering how people vote would be to reach just a little bit further? You might want to reconsider that statement...
