How is mandatory voting in Australia enforced?

I'm assuming there's a carrot and stick incentive in place.

The US has ten times the population of Australia. Rough estimate: 300M of voting age in the US. Let's say 10% of them decide "Don't wanna; ain't gonna." Will they be fined, jailed, voting rights revoked? Who does the tracking, federal or states? Will this apply to all elections, from municipalities to states to federal?

Making it mandatory to vote isn't going to change the difficulty to vote. That will just ensure that a lot of people have "broken the law". How will mandatory voting stop "money is speech" and the dirty tricks? If anything it will give the creeps even more incentive to do their voodoo.

In the long run, the sun will expand and consume this planet.

In the short run Lincoln Project is taking Moron and his creatures to the wood shed.

If they turn on Democrats on 4 Nov and beyond, so be it. We'll then know what they are.
