Default Re: Free Will: In Defense of Not Voting

I wonder if a wide spread public sentiment that ignorant voting is not acceptable would be effective in eliminating ignorant voting. We could even eliminate the secret ballot so that a person would have to be prepared to defend his or her vote at any moment or risk looking foolish. My guess is that, on average, this would lead to a worse society where folks with minority political opinions would be ostracized. In an ideal world people would be accepting of differing view points provided they were will informed, but I can't see that happening in practice.
