Labour wants to fine 60% of New Zealanders for not voting

Stuff reports:

for local elections – with fines for those who don’t have their say – is worth considering to tackle record low turnout, says.

Fewer than 40 per cent of eligible voters cast a ballot in last weekend’s local elections, leading to calls for action in order to reverse the downward trend.

So Labour is saying that they want to look at fining two million New Zealanders for not voting. Good luck with that.
