You could also add "fear" as a reason people vote. Many political campaigns use fear as a method to get out the vote and scare people from voting against their opponent. I personally believe there should be a test people must pass before they vote. I think it would make the process much more effective and put our nation on better footing.

First off, I think it's important to remind everyone that we live in a Republic, not a Democracy. There is a difference. Second, a lot of people vote because they want to be involved. Although the fact that most national elections are paired with local and state elections means that more people will most likely participate than they would have if national elections were held on a separate occasion. Third, most elections are all about propaganda. Whoever has a more catchy, believable message wins--whether or not that message is true or honest. Its unfortunate, but that's the way it is. The only way to combat propaganda is with better propaganda or education. Most of the electorate doesn't have the time or interest to get educated, and most politicians and political parties are only interested in spinning their message to have the greatest affect for their cause or candidate. It's too bad.
