Should all EU citizens be obliged by law to vote in EU elections?
Uninformed voters will not be represented well. Compulsory voting will lead to even more negative outcomes than low turnout.
European countries such as Luxembourg or Belgium that have compulsory voting did not have problems of misrepresentation or negative outcomes connected to that obligation.
The people who vote voluntarily are, judging by all the evidence we have, not informed either. In this regard, mandatory voting would therefore hardly make a difference.
