This will be the 4th Presidential election now in which I will not vote. People will always vote, so even though your ideal is noble in principle, it's simply impossible without distracting the entire nation, including those volunteering at polling booths.

Well, I'm in the middle of reading the Constitution word by word and section by section for my Pol- College class and I sure haven't seen a thing about min. numbers or some form of quorum required. I know Congress has very specific regulations about numbers and % required to do business but I don't think even our Founders considered the possibility that so few would even come to care about things anymore for turnout itself to be a problem.
They went through so much trouble protecting our ability to vote and rights on everything...I just honestly don't believe those men could have conceived that all they fought and died for would reach the day it has now. Less than half even bother to give their opinion by a vote anymore. In that way, we do have the Government we deserve, eh?
