I voted in USSR, USA and now in Ecuador.
In USSR we used to have only one candidate, voting was obligatory and you could buy food and beer at the voting places. It was huge motivation for people, because in the grocery store food and beer were available sporadically. And it felt like a party, people shopping for the food, eating and drinking at the voting place.
My boyfriend at the time worked for the union and I tell you in 2002, it was party after party after party, at the union expense. In one of these union sponsored parties I had a privilege to meet in person and chat briefly with Paul Wellstone. I volunteered for his election campaign.
In 2004 there was not much hope, but still I voted.
