Abstract: Australia's system of compulsory voting enjoys high levels of community acceptance but has its critics. This paper argues that compulsory voting serves the value of equality of political opportunity as well as maintaining high voter turnout. It ensures that voting is not confined to the more prosperous members of society and preserves political community as well as acting as a buffer against social isolation.
