We recently had election and only about a half of voters turned up for the vote.

Don't people realise it is their democratic right to vote, to be able to influence where we are going as society? Don't they realise what a priviledge this is compared to old times and places with no democracy. It is a duty and responsibility in my opinion. If you don't vote, then don't complain!
offcourse people realise and understand that voting is thier civic responsibility and how powerful the suppose right could be but voters like myself dont bother to come out on election day to excercise such constitutional right because at the end of the day your vote dont count, there is already a prearranged election, where by the candidate has been chosen, the election is just for eye say, then what is the essence of coming out to vote when my vote wont count?

Sometimes people think that elections are already decides before they have even started and they decide not to vote because think their vote will not change anything.
But that is completely wrong attitude, you have to fully use your right to vote and try to change the situation in your country and society for the better.

In my opinion, due to experience, people don't get to vote because they fear for their life. Some persons tend to be violent which could bear violence as such risking the lives of the innocent that came to vote.
Also some believe the election is already decided bfr the actual day of election.
No fairness...

I used to have voter's apathy and never voted because I thought to myself "My vote won't make a difference" and I think it's the reason most people don't vote.
The thing that puts me off of voting the most is not agreeing with the manifesto of the candidates / parties. I agree with some of the policies of some of them and disagree with others so for me there isn't an ideal choice.
There is also a feeling that parties lie just to get the vote (and do not stick to their pledges) and this puts a lot of people off of voting.

There are reasons why people don't vote. Some people don't know about the voting. So, they don't have any reason to try.

Other people aren't allowed to vote, because they are not a part of the group that makes up the voting process.

Still others are too lazy, or have something more important to do (they think) when the polls are open.

But, those people who know about voting AND could vote, but don't, actually DO vote when they don't vote. By not voting, they are voting to do away with the voting and/or the whole system. Their vote is against the voting process if they don't vote. I mean, you can't vote and state that voting is wrong at the same time, except if the voting question is what is being voted on.

If 100% of the people didn't vote, what would happen to the system? It would dissolve, of course. It might be immediately replaced by something else. But it would dissolve regarding the form it had been in. The question is, what's the fewest non-voters that you would have to have to get the system to dissolve? 90% of the voters? 80%?

I think many people are not educated enough, they don't understand they way politics works so they vote for the so called favorites or do not vote at all. more attention should be put towards educating people

Choosing or not choosing it depends on the confidence of our conscience in determining the best, in fact, there are several reasons why we do not choose. The first one in my opinion because I do not know the leader of the head of state, with this, makes the public do not use the right to vote. The second in my opinion because of the leader of the head of state candidate ever case, of course, we choose to find the best, honest and affection society because it uses the right to vote it depends on our hearts.

I was once them (who did not vote). the things I think about then, what do I choose? there will not be a big change in me when I choose between them, it just wasting my time just sleeping and watching tv, I do not know them, in fact I never meet them. that's what I think of then, maybe a lot of people who also think the same as me

Here my country there are people who don't care voting at all, yeah they never realize that it is their right to vote to choose their own leader.

But I asked one of them, he said "I'm tired of cycles" basically he vote and the official that will sit will just do the same thing and that is corruption. He generalize all officials that way, too sad.  Undecided

In our country, democracy is only a beautiful word and a circus that is shown to us!
We all understand that freedom of law, freedom of speech, freedom of choice is great, but when the 4 presidential elections are held according to the written scenario - people just give up!
There can be no such thing that the President gets 80% of the votes in the elections - and in fact no one will ask-everyone hates him and voted for another!
Therefore, 40% of citizens go to the elections and nothing depends on them!

I dunno, I think a lot of the youth just aren't interested, which is sad.

My teachers all of my school career have, believe it or not, have tried to discourage my student body to not vote. They always told us it wouldn’t matter anyway, which is so not true.
It’s called disenfranchisement, for instance it’s going on right now with the Ike victims. People are telling them they aren’t allowed to vote since they no longer have a residence, but in reality all they need to do is list their current shelter as their current residence and there’s no problem, but people are tying to tell them otherwise.

I think the main reason that people don't vote is due to their lack of interest in politics and some of them believe that whoever they vote they will end up still suffering  the same issues they are suffering even before they vote. Maybe there are also others that just don't care but most of them must have their interests regarding politics vanish because of the issues that was discovered but was never resolved due to their power and money.

In my country, people don't vote because most times their votes doesn't count. Corrupt politicians will always maneuver their way to winning.

Ummm...
There are some many countries where democracy is just a circus. I can absolutely understand why people do not believe in democracy anymore and prefer to stay home instead of going to vote for someone they don't believe in.
Platon wrote "Democracy is the tyranny of the ignorant people", for he thought you can make people stupid enough so they vote for the worst candidates, and this is kind of true...
Anyway, look at the world. The common feeling I see in the people is dejection. Humanity is losing the hope in the future, for the present is chaotic and unfair. Maybe is just that: people can't see the point of going to vote anymore, for everything is a big circus and they have the feeling they can do nothing about.
Maybe they are right, perhaps they are wrong. I just understand the feeling.

I totally agree! The circus everywhere and demonstrations for the people. Who to vote for? I'm not satisfied with any candidate.There is no "against all" in my country. Anyway, the winner is the one who should and not who is actually elected by the people. I do not believe in fair elections in any country of the world

I agree that the opportunity to choose representatives of the authorities is not just a right, but a duty and a big responsibility. In my country people are very skeptical about elections. They do not believe in honest politicians, honest elections. My fellow citizens believe that all politicians are the same (lying, corrupt). Therefore, they think elections are a waste of time. They believe that their voice does not affect what is happening in the country. People are passive, because they are too often disappointed.

Some individuals believe they don’t understand enough about either the government, the election process or individual party policies to vote and also Without the right political education, people don’t feel able to engage with politics.

Some individuals who are interested in politics and even support a political party, don’t vote because they feel their vote would be wasted. Believing that the election will be rigged causing their votes Not to count.
