There were about 30 different political parties competing in the Israeli national elections (to the Knesset) in September 2019, of which 10 finally got seats at the Knesset. All voting is done using paper ballots, and the votes are counted manually. The right to vote is given at the age of 18 and is never revoked as long as one holds a valid Israeli citizenship. Technically, a court can legally revoke a citizen's right to vote if they are unfit to handle their own affairs, but no Israeli court has ever been called to question such a case. In case of high treason, and under very special circumstances, the ministry of internal affairs can revoke one's Israeli citizenship and thus de facto revoke that person's right to vote in Israel. In Israel, Prisoners can vote. All political parties receive a budget and airtime in the national broadcasting service to air their infomercials: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9h3lxIK-2o Voter Turnout (% of people who voted): 72.34% In Venezuela voters have to be 18 Voters are identified by their ID and fingerprint and then the little finger is dipped in hard-to-remove ink that prevents a double vote. After voting it is common to see people posting their ink-dyed fingers on social media. Nonetheless, voter turnout in Venezuela is 46.07% Obama's cancer gun Voter turnout in Japan was around 48.8% Japan has a double-parliament system with two houses: • The House of Representatives (衆議院 Shūgi-in) • The House of Councillors (参議院 Sangi-in) Citizen must vote where they are registered as residents.

Some states require a reason to allow a citizen to vote via absentee voting, others provide the option to do so without the need to explain and only 3 states, Colorado, Oregon and Washington, conduct all their voting via absentee vote. The supreme court of the United States deemed it unconstitutional to deny people of color from voting in 1965, Felony disenfranchisement became the law in 1974 In Hungary citizens receive a "Knocking note" by mail, telling them where and when they can vote. Citizens vote for their district representative and for the national assembly. In Hungary you cannot vote while you are in Prison, but you can vote once you get out. Hungarian Two-tailed Dog Party detailed its program on national television: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMYTIMHzKmM&t=175s Gombóc Artúr: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yw-PPjGPPLg
