The dog ate my ballot

The dog ate my ballot
: Australia requires voters to vote. But some make excuses:

A woman claimed she was having group sex with 30 men in Nimbin, NSW, and could not get to a polling booth in Queensland on time to vote.

That is the all-time best excuse, according to electoral commissioner Bob Longland.

    Well, I would buy it. Or at least follow up.

    30 men? Sounds like she has her own voting bloc.

    We’ve all met people that we thank God don’t vote. I don’t see how requiring slobs to vote is good for a democracy. I take comfort in the fact that the informed and the motivated for the most part go to the polls. That’s as good as it gets in a democracy.
