But this should not be something that is considered new. Throughout all American history political parties have been playing to the emotions of the voter to achieve agendas. To understand how this is possible it is important to look at how political advertising is meant to be used and how it affects people that are exposed to it and how powerful of a tool it actually is. Next, it is advantageous to understand the history behind political advertising that has become such a major part of American culture. Finally, even with political agendas behind political advertisements there are positive side effects to their attempts at motivating the viewer to vote a certain way, including the spread of information that would otherwise never be shared.

A compulsory voting system similar to the one used in Australia is not a system Canada should implement. Compulsory voting in the context of a democratic society can be a misleading term (Lever, 2010). Canada practices the secret ballot process in voting, and so it is impossible to verify if someone has cast a legally valid ballot. If countries have a singular goal of simply increasing voter turnout, compulsory voting could remedy this problem and it should be more accurately defined as being compulsory voter turnout (Lever, 2010). The belief that compulsory voting inherently improves democracy is misleading (Lever, 2010).
