That's one way to increase turn-out

Am I the only person in the universe who didn't know voting is mandatory in 25 countries?
Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Republic of the Congo, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Egypt, Greece, Honduras, Lebanon, Libya, Luxembourg, Mexico, Nauru, Paraguay, Peru, Singapore, Thailand and Uruguay
I must say, I am growing quite fond of the LA Times (which also totally exasperates me sometimes). I often learn something when I read it.
